A Record Number Of Women To Run For Congress In 2018
The charts above are from Axios.com. It shows that as of December 7th, about 410 women have said they will be running for Congress in 2018 (369 for the House of Representatives and 41 for the Senate) -- and most of them are Democrats. It could be more than that, since filing deadlines are still months away.
This is a good thing. That's because Trump's unpopularity and the public's unhappiness with men abusing their power by sexually harassing/abusing women could make 2018 the "Year of the Woman".
Men certainly haven't had a very good record lately. Maybe it's time for women to step up and show how this country should be governed.
