Here's your proof that 2018 is the year of the woman: there are now at least 183 women nominees for U.S. House and 11 women nominees for governor — the highest in history, per the Center for American Women and Politics.

Be smart: Most of the nominees are running as Democrats, which could be a huge advantage for their party come November.

Before this election cycle, 167 women was the record for major party nominees for U.S. House and the previous record for women nominees for governor (10) was set in 1994.

Meet the women who won in August 7 primaries:

  1. Gretchen Whitmer, Democratic nominee for governor in Michigan
  2. Laura Kelly, Democratic nominee for governor in Kansas
  3. Debbie Stabenow, Democratic senator and nominee for re-election in Michigan
  4. Claire McCaskill, Democratic senator and nominee for re-election in Missouri
  5. Maria Cantwell, Democratic senator and nominee for re-election in Washington
  6. Susan Hutchison, Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Washington

  9. Elissa Slotkin, Democratic nominee for U.S. House in Michigan's 8th district
  10. Candius Stearns, Republican congresswoman and nominee for re-election in Michigan's 9th district

The White House is finalizing a series of executive orders addressing key coronavirus stimulus priorities if negotiations with Congress fall apart, and it's leaving the door open for President Trump to use them even if a deal is reached that doesn't encompass all of his priorities, two administration officials tell Axios.

What we’re hearing: “I wouldn't be surprised that, if something gets left off the table, we’d be like ‘we can take this executive action too and be able to win on it anyway,’” one official said.

TikTok said Friday that it was "shocked" by President Trump's executive order that will ban Americans from dealing with ByteDance, its China-based owner, in 45 days.

Why it matters: TikTok argued that Trump's move "risks undermining global businesses' trust in the United States' commitment to the rule of law, which has served as a magnet for investment and spurred decades of American economic growth."
