Office of Sen. Mitch McConnell(WASHINGTON) — A pro-Hillary Clinton group, Ready for Hillary, formed to encourage the former secretary of state and first lady to run for president in 2016, lashed out at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., for his comments at the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference earlier Friday.

“Don’t tell me Democrats are the party of the future, when their presidential ticket for 2016 is shaping up to look like a rerun of the Golden Girls,” McConnell said, referring to Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden.

Ready for Hillary Communications Director Seth Bringman called the line “blatant sexism.”

“Senator McConnell’s comments mark the kickoff of a despicable, sexist attack on Hillary that we have expected for a long time,” Bringman said in a statement. “McConnell and many of his fellow Republicans are the ones who want to take women’s rights back to decades before the Golden Girls first aired.”

“They know that Hillary is the most qualified candidate — of any age or gender — and that she would be the most effective president. They can’t have a debate about the issues or the qualifications of their own candidates, so they resort to blatant sexism. It needs to stop here and now,” the statement continued.
