Women Are Still Crushing It In The 2018 Primaries (HBO)

On Tuesday, 62 women will face off in primaries for federal and statewide executive positions across Kansas, Michigan, Missouri and Washington. The winners will join 244 other women who have dominated their races in the so-called “Year of the Woman 2.0,” where more than 700 women are running for higher office.

Despite the surge in female candidates, women still make up less than a quarter of all congressional candidates. For that to change, it isn’t enough for more women to run — they also need to win. And if the primaries are any indication of how women will fare in November, things are looking promising.

Almost two-thirds of women running for higher office this year have already faced their first contests — and they’ve been successful in just about half of their races. That success has primarily been driven by Democrat women, who make up almost 70 percent of female candidates and have won over half their primaries. Republican women account for just 30 percent of candidates, and have won 44 percent of their primary races.

On both sides of the aisle, women are seeing the most success in House races. For now, Senate and gubernatorial race wins have proved a bit more elusive.

Of course, all of this is just the primaries — the real test for female candidates will come on November 6th.

Meet The Trump Fans Of Q-Anon (HBO)

President Trump is flying around the country this week trying to convince Americans that if the want to Keep America Great, they need to vote Republican in November.

But his campaign rally in Tampa Tuesday was about more than just the mid-terms. It was the national coming out party for Q, a conspiracy theory that has been kicking around the Trumpworld internet for just about a year.

One part Pizzagate, one part X-Files, the theory posits a government agent (with supposed “Q-Level” Top Secret clearance) putting cryptic messages on Trump-friendly message boards, telling adept readers where to find clues that point to a massive government conspiracy Trump is single-handedly thwarting from the oval office in secret. Example: The Mueller probe is actually being run by Trump as a smokescreen to cover up an investigation into sex trafficking by Democrats and moviestars, according to some Q denizens.

The Tampa rally had a lot of Qers feeling like Trump acknowledged them directly, urging them to carry on. VICE News spoke with one Florida family who became Q famous after Trump seemed to give them a wave from the rally stage.
