After last night’s primaries in Rhode Island, there are now a record-breaking 14 female gubernatorial nominees.

Why it matters: It’s another sign of the "year of the woman." If all of these women were to win in November, it would more than double the number of female governors in office.

Meet the women nominees for governor:

  1. Mary Throne, D, Wyoming
  2. Kate Brown, D, Oregon
  3. Paulette Jordan, D, Idaho
  4. Kristi Noem, R, South Dakota
  5. Michelle Lujan Grisham, D, New Mexico
  6. Lupe Valdez, D, Texas
  7. Kim Reynolds, R, Iowa
  8. Gretchen Whitmer, D, Michigan
  9. Kay Ivey, R, Alabama
  10. Stacey Abrams, D, Georgia
  11. Christine Hallquist, D, Vermont
  12. Molly Kelly, D, New Hampshire
  13. Janet Mills, D, Maine
  14. Gina Raimondo, D, Rhode Island
