On Tuesday, GOP Senate candidate Courtland Sykes lost his bid in the Missouri primaries. Sykes made headlines earlier this year for saying that women should be “traditional homemakers.”

Sykes described himself as an “America First” candidate while he was running and promised to help fulfill Trump’s agenda.

In a now deleted statement on Facebook, he outlined an ultra-conservative position on women’s rights.

In the post, he demanded that he wants to always come home to a home-cooked dinner made by his fiancee. He added that he wants his future daughter to learn to become a “traditional homemaker and family wives.”

The statement read,  “I want to come home to a home-cooked dinner at six every night, one that she [Sykes’ fiancee] fixes and one that I expect one day to have daughter learn to fix after they become traditional homemakers and family wives — think Norman Rockwell here, and Gloria Steinem be damned.”

He also noted that he doesn’t want his daughters to grow up as “career obsessed banshees who forego home life … to become nail-biting manophobic hell-bent feminist she devils who shriek from the tops of a thousand tall buildings.”

He concluded his misogynistic statement saying he supports women’s rights ” “but not the kind that has suppressed natural womanhood for five long decades.”

Sykes faced off against Republican Attorney General Josh Hawkley but lost. Now, Hawkley will face Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in November. This race will be crucial in deciding which party will control the U.S. Senate.
