Women are taking the primaries by storm. 

On Tuesday, June 12, voters in Maine, Virginia, Nevada and South Carolina took to the polls to vote for candidates in the House primaries. 

According to the Center for American Women and Politics, 456 women have run for seats in the House so far in 2018. Of those women, 128 have won primaries as of Wednesday, June 13.

Virginia saw the most wins for women on Tuesday. In all four of Virginia's House races, there will be a Democratic woman in the running. Elaine Luria, Abigail Spanberger, and Jennifer Wexton were the winners in Tuesday night's primary. Leslie Cockburn is the Democratic nominee for Virginia's 5th Congressional district.

Nevada saw two women win their primaries - Rep. Jacky Rosen and Susie Lee - secured Democratic nominations.

The year of the women is upon us.
