While presidential election results in swing states remain unclear at this point, Republicans can undoubtedly celebrate one significant electoral victory. More GOP women won key House and Senate seats than in any previous election.
After watching a wave of Democrat women win Congressional races in 2018, Republican women made significant electoral gains on Tuesday night. At least 12 new GOP women were elected in key house races, with 10 incumbent women winning reelection. With some results still pending, 11 more GOP women could possibly win key house races.

House GOP women could very well have made up all of their 2018 losses (when they dropped from 23 to 13)— Ally Mutnick (@allymutnick) November 4, 2020
By my count, they will have ~at least~ 22 women next year, if not several more
At least 10/11 incumbents coming back + there are TWELVE pickups (and counting)

On the Senate side, Republican women won or advanced further in races in Georgia, Iowa, Mississippi, West Virginia, Wyoming and Maine. Only Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ) lost her tough reelection battle on the Senate side.

One of the biggest stories of last night: GOP women— Olivia PC (@olivia_pc) November 4, 2020
In 2018, they watched from the sideline as a wave of Democrat women were elected. The GOP vowed to make a difference and invested in women like never before.
This election, it's the Year of the Republican Woman.
With results still coming in, the GOP could make even more gains for female representation. Follow our coverage of the incoming results here.
