Reid's opposition to commissioner's renomination fuels GOP push-back on gender issues

In opposing the renomination of GOP Nuclear Regulatory Commission member Kristine Svinicki, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) risks handing Republicans an effective counterpunch in the two parties' fight for female votes this November. Part of Reid's pickle comes from poor timing. Republicans seized on what they long saw as a slow-walking of Svinicki's approval due to resistance from the majority leader -- whose home state would house the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository, which the commissioner evaluated early in her career -- during a week when the White House and congressional Democrats slammed the GOP as out of touch with women.
