The graph for the House alone looks pretty much the same as the the graph above, as the House has more than 10 times the number of elections in 2018 as the Senate.
The graph for the Senate, however, is a little different:
Instead of four times as many women running as Democrats compared to Republicans, there’s only about twice as many. There are not many more than 2016, either. Each year, however, is not exactly an apples-to-apples comparison with every other year, as only a third of the Senate seats are up for election in each cycle.
