A record number of 13 women are running for the Senate as Democrats or Republicans. There are currently 20 women in the Senate. In the best case, there could be 27 women in the new Senate because in two states (Maine and West Virginia) both candidates are women and only one is going to win and in four states the incumbent is a woman. Here is the list of female Senate candidates.
|North Carolina||Kay Hagan*||Democratic|
|New Hampshire||Jeanne Shaheen*||Democratic|
|West Virginia||Natalie Tennant||Democratic|
|West Virginia||Shelley Moore-Capito||Republican|
