All-female NH delegation could be short-lived

The Associated Press

CONCORD - New Hampshire's tenure as the only state with an all-female delegation in Washington could be coming to an end.

Democrats Carol Shea-Porter and Annie Kuster were elected to the U.S. House two years ago, joining Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Republican Sen. Ayotte. At least two of those seats will continue to be held by women after Nov. 4 because Ayotte isn't up for re-election, and the 2nd District race features two women: Kuster and Republican Marilinda Garcia. But Shea-Porter and Shaheen face male Republican challengers, Frank Guinta and Scott Brown.

According to the Center for American Women and Politics, 18 women are running for U.S. Senate and 166 for the House this year, and a record 16 races feature women running against women.
