Why would the answer not be 'E'. Less wordy and conveying the same info...

C.

E has wrong comparision.

"Senators" is compared to "Women"

correct statement could have been:
wished for more senators who are moderate Republicans than women senators.

The C's have it!

E is drawing a comparison between "more Senators" and "women," thus it is incorrect.

C, with "did not wish so much for... as for" is idiomatically correct (at least compared to the other answers).
