(CNN) — A record number of women are projected to win seats in the House in a massive night for female candidates across the political spectrum.

As of early Wednesday morning, CNN projected 98 women would win House races, with 33 women newly elected to the House and 65 female incumbents. That bests the previous record of 85 representatives, according to the Congressional Research Service. There are still two outstanding races that have two women competing against each other, which means that at least 100 women will be serving in the House next year.

The article goes on to state the following:

On the Senate side, CNN projected by early Wednesday that 12 women would win Senate seats, with two newly elected women joining nine female incumbents.
