Record Number Of Women Running For Governor In 2018
(undated) — A record number of women are running for governor in 2018. At least 79 women — 49 Democrats and 30 Republicans — say they are running or “seriously considering” running for the highest office in their state. That’s more than double the record 34 women who ran for governor in 1994. The Center for American Women in Politics at Rutgers University attributes the surge to multiple factors, among them Hillary Clinton’s defeat and the policies of the Trump Administration.
