Courage Campaign Demands CA GOP Apologize for Racist, Sexist Anti-Hillary Clinton Buttons Sold at Republican Party Convention

The California-based progressive organization CourageCampaign.org is slamming the California GOP, demanding an apology for selling racist, sexist and objectifying anti-Hillary Clinton buttons at the California Republican Party annual convention held over the weekend.

Paul Song, executive chairman of CourageCampaign.org, responded to the buttons at the California Republican Party annual convention with the following statement:

“At the California Republican Party convention this weekend, leaders in the GOP spent most of the time wondering why their party is so unpopular with women and people of color, while at the same time relying on the same tired, racist and sexist attacks to energize their base.  If the Republican Party wants to have a future here in the State, they need to wake up and realize that Californians are more interested in keeping the government open, functioning and avoiding default on our obligations than in the politics of division and hate.”
