A record-breaking number of female candidates ran for office in this week's Texas state primaries, and will go head-to-head in three runoff races across the state. Cosmopolitan's Jessica Pels explains why this trend is so historic. For the first time in the state's history, Texas could send a Latina to Congress. Both Veronica Escobar and Sylvia Garcia won their primaries in traditionally Democrat-held districts. When asked whether this rise of women in politics was slowing down anytime soon, Pels says she doesn't think so. A record number of women are running for office in the 2018 midterms.
