Regarding The U.S. Senate

Twenty-six states have been represented by female senators (which means that 24 have not)

1. I think four have never elected female senators either

Alaska and now North Dakota have. So the other four are the only states that have never sent a woman to either house of Congress.

Except Iowa and Mississippi, most of them are small states that only have 1 House rep and have not had a ton of turnover in the last 30 years, so that's probably why.

2. I never thought I'd see Vermont on this list.

Vermont is like liberal California, except without the inclusion of all of the right wing crazies on the side.

3. Well, to be fair to Vermont, they don't have a lot of chances.

They only have one rep, and once someone gets in, there isn't much chance for anyone to be a replacement. They've only had a total of four people in the job since 1975.
