Jewish Women to Watch in Election 2018

With less than a week until Election Day, here’s an update on the Jewish female candidates profiled by Lilith in our Summer and Fall issues.

Alma Hernandez, Democrat • Candidate for Arizona’s 3rd District

There are two spots in the race, and Hernandez is polling in second behind Andres Cano (D). Though there is a Green Party candidate, no Republican candidate is running for the seats, virtually guaranteeing Hernandez’s win.

-If elected, Hernandez will become the youngest member of the Arizona state legislature, and first Mexican American Jewish woman in office.
