Alaska Democratic chair: Higher standard for women leaders

    Casey Steinau says the party's presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, and all woman leaders are held to a higher standard than men.

    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The chairwoman of the Alaska Democratic party says the party's presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, and all woman leaders are held to a higher standard than men.

    Casey Steinau says the perception is that Clinton has to come across as "warm," but no one is saying Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump isn't warm enough.

    Steinau says Clinton has been demonstrating why she would make a good president, and attendees of this week's Democratic national convention have been hearing that case made, too.

    She says the convention has done a good job of showing the different sides of Clinton.

    But she says Republicans did not do a good job at their convention last week of shedding any new insights on Trump.
