She keeps bringing it:
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said the lack of female representation in her party's leadership is a big problem.(Emphasis mine.)
"It does concern me that there are not more women in leadership positions," Collins said, "that I do think is disappointing."
She suggested that Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell should at least consider informally including a woman in his leadership deliberations.
A spokesman for McConnell said the elected leadership will not include a woman, but it is possible he may in fact bring a female senator in informally.
I'd love to know how that "informal inclusion" gets worked out in practice.
