Was 2010 Campaign Rife w/Sexism?

Republican Sen.-elect Kelly Ayotte and some supporters hold signs in Manchester, N.H., to thank voters Wednesday.

And when all the ballots are counted, women may end up with fewer seats in Congress than they started with. (AP Photo/Cheryl Senter, File)

Question: Do you agree with feminists that sexism against female candidates was rampant during the 2010 campaign?
