CAWP Reports: GOP Women Surpass Previous High for Filed House Candidates
The latest from the Center for American Women and Politics:
"With candidate filings posted in 25 states, and deadlines passed in an additional two states that have not yet posted candidate lists, 140 Republican women have filed to run for U.S. House seats, a new high since the Center for American Women and Politics began collecting this data in 1990. The previous high for Republican women House candidates was 133, set in 2010. With filing deadlines still open in nearly half of states, including New York and Florida, Republican women have further potential to add to their House candidate pool."
