“Nevada women are on the verge of breaking a major barrier. The state could could be the first the nation to have a legislature where the majority of the elected officials are women by the end of this year’s election cycle. Of the 42 seats in the state assembly, women are running for 31, and seven women are running for the state Senate’s 10 open seats,” NBC News reports.
“That would be quite a feat considering only 25 percent of the nation’s state legislators are women.”
“Currently, women representatives make up 38 percent of Nevada’s legislature. Only Arizona and Vermont have a larger percentage, both sitting at 40 percent.”Save to Favorites
