    By: Nor Attisha on May 14, 2018

    Heather Caygle writes, “Women romped in the first multi-state primary night of 2018, showing that enthusiasm for female candidates isn’t likely to wane anytime soon.

    More than three in five female House candidates won their races in the states that held primaries: North Carolina, Indiana, West Virginia and Ohio. And of the 27 female House candidates who were successful, nearly 30 percent were women of color, according to data compiled by the Center for American Women and Politics."
