French Roast News

Anne is reading …

From left, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R), Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D), Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D) and Rep. Ann Kuster (D) will make up an all-female congressional delegation in New Hampshire.New Hampsire is the first state to send an all-female delegation to Congress: Republican senator Kelly Ayotte and Democrat Senator Jeanne Shaheen, accompanied by Democrats Rep. Carol Shea-Porter and Rep. Ann Kuster.

New Hampshire also elected Maggie Hassan as the only Democrat woman governor. The race pitted women’s and minority rights advocate Hassan against social conservative Republican Ovide Lamontagne.

In a banner night for women, Democrat Elizabeth Warren unseated Independent — usually voting Republican Scott Brown — in Massachusetts. Brown won Ted Kennedy’s seat in a special election after the senator’s death of brain cancer.

Wisconsin sent the first openly-gay woman to the Senate, Democrat Tammy Baldwin. Baldwin has been one of four openly gay House members. Baldwin defeated former Bush cabinet head Tommy Thompson. Other races with women include:

Women Winners

Claire McCaskill (D-MO) retained Senate seat against “legitimate rape” Todd Akin.

Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) in Senate bid.

Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) in Senate bid.

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) Retained Senate seat.

Deb Fischer (R-Neb) Taking Senate seat vacated by Democrat Ben Nelson.

Dianne Feinstein (D-Ca) re-elected to Senate.

Amy Klobuchar (D-Mn) retained her Senate seat.

Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) narrowly retained House seat.

Tammy Duckworth (D-Il) elected to House

Women Losers

Linda McMahon (R-Ct) in bid for Senate

Shelley Berkley (D-Nev) in bid for Senate

Heather Wilson (R-NM) in bid for Senate

Linda Lingle (R-Hawaii) in Senate bid

Cynthia Dill (D-Me) in Senate bid. Dill lost to popular Independent Angus King, who is expected to caucus with Democrats.

Mia Love (R-Ut) failed in her bid to become the GOP’s first black congresswoman.

Mary Bono Mack (R-Ca) lost her House seat.

Voters Speak

Mitt Romney won the white vote, 58 to 40 percent, making it the biggest lead for a Republican since 1988.

White women delivered the election to Obama. If white women had stayed in Romney’s camp, swing states in Ohio, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, and Virginia — although NH voters seemed determined to launch an estrogen lovefest.

Instead, Obama led among women by 12 points, nearly identical to his lead among women four years ago. For all the stories ab out white women abandoning Obama after the first debate, it didn’t happen. 

Romney’s most reliant bloc the whole campaign was white men. He led by 25 points with them today. But in 1976, white men were 46 percent of voters. Today they’re at a new low, 34 percent.

In Congressional races, Elizabeth Warren beat Scott Brown, thanks to an 18-point lead among women voters. Women went for Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin by 14 points. Incumbent Minnesota senator Amy Klobuchar defeated opponent Kurt Bills with a mind-boggling 44-point lead with women.

As Lauren Sandler reported at New York Magazine’s The Cut earlier this week, female leaders on the Hill tend to fight harder on issues that female voters care about. The influx of women will likely press the Senate’s Democratic majority to move left.



The Aristocracy of Sex and Other New GlamTribale Cards, Journals, Gift Boxes and Jewelry

Instead of biting my nails listening to pundits talk about the election, I decided to get very creative and preoccupied with GlamTribale this afternoon. I’ve been encouraged by curators to expand my range beyond jewelry, to make my work a totally unique entry in high-end arts and crafts shows.

Above is a one-of-a-kind card that will hold a pair of GlamTribale earrings. Below left is a large journal with the first of our mini goddess dresses. My dear friend Scottish photographer Kate Scott already sent me to get a copy of a book on just these dresses.

We’ve finished rephotographing all the jewelry on grey grounds, and the website looks so much better. Check it out!

So this is how I’m counting the hours until the voting is over and we know what’s in store for American and international women impacted by our aid programs in the coming years. ~ Anne
