Surge in Female GOP Candidates

Surge in Female GOP Candidates

( – With all the craziness the DNC has brought to the 2020 elections, there are some good things happening as well. One of them is the increased gender diversity in Congressional races across the country. The number of female candidates running for a seat in Congress has risen substantially compared to previous election cycles.

The Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP) reports that a total of 490 women are running for House seats in 2020. Democrats are leading with 295 running compared to 195 Republicans, but this CAWP number doesn’t show the full scope. That 490 number is based on state government candidate listings, which is updated after filing deadlines have passed.

The National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) has different records. The NRCC lists 223 GOP female candidates running for House seats this year. This is up substantially from 2010 when there were 133 Republican women running during the Tea Party era.

Lisa Song Sutton in Nevada is one of them.

Republican populism is on the rise, and with it come more female candidates who want to keep America great and uphold the constitution.
