267 Women of Color Run for Congress

An analysis by the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP) at Rutgers University shows at least 267 women of color are major-party candidates for Congress in 2020 — breaking the previous record of 179 in 2018. CAWP, a Vision 2020 Allied Organization, details the findings in a press release. The analysis shows the breakdown by party is 163 Democrats and 86 Republicans for the U.S. House; 13 Democrats and 5 Republicans for the U.S. Senate. A Huffington Post article about the CAWP analysis included the photo at left of Tennessee candidate Keeda Haynes.
