NPR National Political Correspondent Elizabeth Arnold reports on the difficult reelection campaigns that three of the women in the United States Senate are waging this year. Senators Carol Mosley-Braun of Illinois, Patty Murray of Washington State, and Barbara Boxer of California, all Democrats, have been targeted by the Republican Party as especially vulnerable to defeat. All three won election in 1992, which became known as "The Year of the Woman."
