Are Women Candidates Winning More In 2018?

Of the 43 women running for the House in Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio and West Virginia on May 8, 27 of them - or 62.8 percent - won their primary bids.

Messer was highly critical of Trump throughout the 2016 general election. The eventual victor of the GOP Senate nomination, state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, emphasized his record fighting drugs and his hardline views on immigration. "Vote Rep. Jenkins or A.G. Morrisey!" On the Democratic side, Manchin is projected to beat challenger Paula Swearengin, according to NBC.
