If there is one lesson that should be learned from the voting habits of past female Republicans, it is that they are usually Lite Democrats. I can still remember when Christie Todd Whitman was supposed to be the great conservative hope... and what a joke that turned out to be. The Carly Fiorinas and Sue Lowdens of the world are NEVER going to vote to overturn a single federal entitlement. It's just not going to happen.
With the exception of Sharon Angle, I see no reason to think of these Republican candidates as anything but electoral pressure valves. Naturally, she's the one candidate that the Republican establishment opposes.
