Which State Has Never Sent a Woman to Congress?

From an axios.com story by Mike Allen headlined “Which one state has never sent a woman to Congress?”:

I wouldn’t have guessed Vermont, either.

Driving the news: With a rare opening in its congressional delegation, the Green Mountain State is poised to lose its distinction as the only state that has never been represented by a woman in Washington, AP’s Wilson Ring reports from Montpelier.

The big picture: Three women — Lt. Gov. Molly Gray, Senate President Pro Tempore Becca Balint, and Sianay Chase Clifford, a social worker and former Capitol Hill aide — are among the Democrats competing in a Aug. 9 primary. It’s for a seat being vacated by the state’s lone U.S. House member, Democrat Peter Welch, who’s trying to move to the Senate.
