Cathy Myers, Randy Bryce's primary challenger, is being told to "go away" and drop out.

This is exactly why I got so mad when the media normalized sexism when it was directed at Hillary.

Though more women are running than ever before, they're facing the same barriers HRC did.
I didn't even know that Randy Bryce had a primary challenger until today and I'm always on Twitter and going through the trending news stories.

Where is the national coverage for Cathy Myers? Why isn't her video being shared and praised?
I agree with what Diane said here. While I understand that #WI1 has national implications because whoever wins will challenge the Speaker of the House, this primary has become completely one-sided because of national discourse, which is steeped in sexism.
I find @SenSanders' focus on local and state races particularly troubling. So did my community. A joint group of Sanders and Clinton supporters wrote a letter to the Senator explaining that his appearances are unproductive.…
Do you research on @IronStache. He's been made into a political celebrity but that has distracted from his many problems, including sexist and derogatory remarks.

Consider aiding #GOTV efforts in Wisconsin instead of taking this decision away from #WI1 constituents.
I'll end with this: excusing the sexism + misogyny that destroyed Hillary Clinton means that it'll destroy future candidates. This shouldn't be a debate anymore: Hillary Clinton's gender contributed to her loss.

I'm throwing my support behind @CathyMyersWI & I hope you will too.
Why does this story sound so familiar...? 🤔
We saw local voters turn off national noise before, ie in Virginia. Though she's ahead in the polls, I'd really like to see more stories about her/a spike in donations.

I agree; I think we should shy away from the "Cult of Personality" moving forward.
Again, I really believe that we still haven't learned the right lessons from 2016. We have a lot of serious reckoning to do on our side too.
I don't know about local coverage since I don't live in WI, but he is definitely killing it nationally. With national focus being more on midterms than possibly ever before, I think media/celebs/Tweeters are tainting this primary by not talking about her.
Me too. Even larger than that, I'm seeing how unfairly women are treated when they run for office. What's happening to @CathyMyersWI is exactly why women don't want/are afraid to run.
This is what happens when your opponent has more donations. They can afford to invest more in @adwords. What a shame.
I'm going to as well. Going to finish off this thread with a donation link for @CathyMyersWI:…

@RockTheVote is also doing some awesome #GOTV work in Wisconsin:…

Thanks for the follow @CathyMyersWI. Glad to help get your name out there. Spread the word friends! 💙 #TheFutureIsFemale #WI01
I don’t really know how else to get this to happen, but I’m going to try because many have requested this.

RT if you’d tune into @amjoyshow to see @CathyMyersWI and @JoyAnnReid talk about #WI01! #AMJoy
