More women than ever have been elected to state offices, according to the Center for American Women in Politics at Rutgers. There will now by 1,784 women state legislators, up slightly from the current count of 1,749.
Interestingly, most of the gains are among Democratic women. There will now be fewer Republican women legislators, in fact, than at any time since 1988.
With Bev Perdue in and Ruth Ann Minner out, there's no net gain among women governors. But the number of women in statewide office increases slightly, from 75 to 81.
