Here’s the one they made for the Florida gubernatorial race:

But would you believe it? Lefties have their panties in a twist!

@AndrewHClark @CRNC Women are so stupid that we need to reframe politics as a fake wedding for them to get it. You're right. Amazing!

. @AlexandraCSmith @CRNC it was A. Not funny and B. Really, really offensive. But kudos for making Asa Hutchinson look sexist. well done.

Still amazed that the @CRNC could release such a sexist and demeaning ad. Not one person raised opposition to this during production? #arpx

Bow before the genius of the @CRNC. "I KNOW: LET'S TARGET YOUNG WOMEN BY COMPARING CANDIDATES TO WEDDING DRESSES!" https://t.co/eCo8zohlm8

.@CRNC you should probably just stick to paying call centers to make fundraising calls instead of making sexist ads. pic.twitter.com/bBukwm9Y4B

.@CRNC "Say Yes To Rick Scott" ad targeting women voters is sexist, patronizing & just bizarre http://t.co/dNGyKuBAO8 #sayfie #FlaPol #flgov

— Justin Snyder (@JustinSnyderFL) October 1, 2014

.@cologop @CRNC @bobbeauprez Fun? or incredibly offensive/sexist/condescending and just shows how out of touch GOP are with women

— Sabrina Singh (@sabrinasingh24) October 1, 2014

@cassielee514 @CRNC Ha, GOP still classically clueless. Sexists gotta sexist, I guess.

— stardust (@ofthestardust) October 1, 2014

@AlexandraCSmith @CRNC Im sorry strong women don't look at picking a candidate to vote for like buying a dress.

— lyric thompson (@lyric_thompson) October 2, 2014

With the NC CRs' strong stance against voter reg and the nat'l committee's horribly sexist ads, this is really not a strong week for @CRNC.

— Evan Goldstein (@egoldstein93) October 2, 2014

The CRNC plans more sexist ads in Florida? What's the next one going to say, "Jobless, no health insurance, barefoot and pregnant?" #flgov

The College Republican National Committee may have made "the Most Sexist Republican Ad of the Year" for Tom Corbett http://t.co/89DWnitOGX

Say “no” to sexist pandering: College Republicans release hilariously bad ad for Rick Scott, insult women [VIDEO]: http://t.co/cjRrhmwJxL

Are College Republicans As Creepy As Their Stupid 'Say Yes To The Dress' Ad? http://t.co/gejnyC7zxS

— Crooks and Liars (@crooksandliars) October 2, 2014

The GOP’s sad attempts to court women's votes remind me of a love-struck guy who just can’t take the hint. http://t.co/Zxx8aG5OTj

— Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) October 2, 2014

"Voting is hard, right ladies?" That's @estherbreger skewering new GOP ads targeting young women http://t.co/Zabsh47aWn

— Jonathan Cohn (@CitizenCohn) October 2, 2014

The College Republicans' "Say Yes to the Candidate" ads are probably the most embarrassing, demeaning & sexist political ads I've ever seen.

— Kyle Griffis (@JKGriff) October 2, 2014

Dumbsh*t college repub's not be learning much. Amazingly terrible sexist add. And they're the future of the GOP? http://t.co/XbmGFtDbUj

— KennethMontana (@KennethFurrow) October 2, 2014

Yeah, those College Republicans ads are, like, so sexist and degrading to women. Not like those empowering ones from liberals:

So amusing to see lib heads explode over @CRNC wedding dress ad targeting women. Same libs gushed over @lenadunham Obama/boyfriend ads.

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) October 2, 2014

@alexisgoldstein @CRNC Is it much worse than encouraging the loss of voting virginity to Obama as per @lenadunham ? https://t.co/TqSKQcXqwk

— Ken Monahan (@Foudroyant) October 2, 2014

Really? Lena Dunham compared it to losing your virginity @lyric_thompson @AlexandraCSmith @CRNC

— Think Freely (@BruceNV) October 2, 2014

The hypocrisy in the media over the @CRNC ad & @LeahDunham ad is astounding. Not a fan of either ad, but one is panned, other is celebrated.

— Matt Frendewey (@mattfrendewey) October 2, 2014

If you're a journo criticizing @CRNC wedding dress ads now, but praised @lenadunham's ad in 2012, you just might be a hack.

— Saat Alety (@SaatAlety) October 2, 2014

The hypocrisy. It scorches.

Democrats are allowed to use pop culture references in ads. Republicans can’t. That’s the media rule guys, @CRNC should know this.

— Andrew Clark (@AndrewHClark) October 1, 2014

OMG! Young GOP women are reaching millenials w/current pop culture analogies & humor. Femmes & Dems OUTRAGED!!! @crnc

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) October 2, 2014

The GOP is finding a way to connect with young people without resorting to creepy sex analogies? Sounds like they’re doing it right.

Oh, and for those who are wondering:

.@CRNC So.. about that sexist ad you folks put together… I imagine a bunch of white dudes thought this one up.. #OutOfTouch

— Justin Snyder (@JustinSnyderFL) October 1, 2014

Question for the @CRNC: Are all the young people featured in this ad actually Republicans? Serious Q.

— Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) October 1, 2014


And just so we're clear, these are the strong, talented women who wrote the @CRNC's "Say Yes" ads! pic.twitter.com/iQHusGJVp3

— Alex Smith (@AlexandraCSmith) October 1, 2014

Again, as I said yesterday, here are the sexists who wrote/produced the ad. @javallon @CRNC @charlierybak pic.twitter.com/ucoS9Lxzpn
