John Deeth Blog: Women winning and not winning

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Silver raises more questions ... With last year's losses by Democrat
Becky Greenwald and Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks, Iowa stayed
in the club with only Mississippi: we're the only two states that have
never elected a woman to Congress or as governor. That's always
subject to change, of course. Democratic eminence grise Jerry Hoffman
was on Iowa Press the other week touting, of all people, conservaDem
Geri Huser for the Grassley race a couple weeks ago, which would at
least open up her legislative seat. But in the meantime, Iowa still
has its reputation as woman-unfriendly political turf, something some
of Hillary Clinton's acolytes may still mention sotto voce (the
Secretary of State herself is being a solid team player so far).
