ICYMI: NBC News: Record-breaking 100 women candidates may be elected to the House in 2018

“In November, Americans could elect more than 100 women to the House for the first time in history — and put more new women in the House than in any prior election, a new race-by-race analysis shows.

“Between 30 and 40 new women are poised to enter the House next January, shattering the previous record of 24 set in 1992's ‘Year of the Woman.’ And much as pundits interpreted 1992's wave as a backlash against Clarence Thomas's Supreme Court confirmation, 2018 is now clearly a backlash to President Donald Trump's election.”
