If this is the Year of the Woman, it may be ending all too abruptly for several Democratic challengers struggling to gain ground in Midwest Senate races against well-financed Republican incumbents. In Kansas, challenger Gloria O'Dell has been unable to dent the prairie popularity of Senate Minority Leader Bob Dole. In Missouri, a scrappy campaign by St. Louis City Councilwoman Geri Rothman-Serot has forced first-term Sen. Christopher S.

The National Women's Political Caucus celebrated the start of a "new era" Thursday with a gala fund-raising event to mark the extraordinary success of women candidates so far this year. "In 1992, everything's coming together," said Harriet Woods, the group's president. "This represents a new era--when women are winning because they're qualified and voters see them as the agents of constructive change."

Sen. Richard C. Shelby of Alabama jumped ahead in a Democratic primary Tuesday, while House members in Ohio and Iowa faced challenges over bad checks as voters picked nominees on one of the busiest primary days of 1992.

As expected, Tuesday's host of primaries resulted in a record for the number of women winning Senate nominations. Unexpectedly, it was a little-known state senator on the West Coast who broke the record, rather than a nationally prominent New Yorker. Democrat Patty Murray's resounding primary victory in Washington state made her the 11th woman tabbed by the major parties to run for the Senate this November, topping the old mark of 10 set in 1984.

Both House Speaker Thomas S. Foley (D-Wash.) and Senate Majority Leader George J. Mitchell (D-Me.) pledged full cooperation with President-elect Bill Clinton as he prepares to take over the White House.

In the heart of America, supposed bastion of Richard Nixon's silent majority during the Vietnam War, the peace movement has grown into a vast patchwork quilt, a piece here, a piece there. Each is different but all are united in a desire to make a better world. Even the Iowa Legislature has contributed to the cause.

"You've never seen a senator look like me, right?" When Carol Moseley Braun poses the question to the small church gathering in this Mississippi River town, she grins warmly. She knows the answer. Nobody has ever seen a U.S. senator like Carol Braun. There have been women senators, although very few of them. There have been black senators, although only three of them, and only one since Reconstruction. But there has never been a black female senator. Carol Moseley Braun is black. She's a woman.
