PBS News Weekend

Season 8, Episode 85 of 99

This campaign season has seen a record-breaking number of women running for public office in the United States. The majority of them are Democrats driven by opposition to the Trump presidency and the Republican Party's control of Congress. Yet there are significant numbers of Republican women running, too. NewsHour Weekend's Megan Thompson recently followed Corrie Meyer, a first-time candidate in the deeply red state of Indiana, who is vying against a member of her own party in the primary for a chance to win a state legislative seat. It's also a race that mirrors some of the divisions challenging the GOP across the country this election cycle.
