Women Nominees

The Rutgers Center for American Women and Politics has its tally of national congressional primaries out, and below the topline news of a record number of female nominees, the party split is enormous.

Non-incumbent women nominees for the US House break down as 71 Democrats, 26 Republicans. That's close to a 3:1 margin.

That's in addition to women incumbents re-nominated: 45 Democrats, 21 Republicans.

A little trivia for you: there is not one Republican woman nominated in a New England congressional district this year.
