Trump Made Them Do It

President Donald Trump inspired these women to run for office.

That’s the premise behind a new documentary series She’s the Ticket.

She’s the Ticket consists of six short behind-the-scenes episodes about five women candidates – most of whom ‘’are entirely new to politics” and all of whom were “jolted by the shocking victory of Donald Trump last November” to throw their hats into the ring.

The candidates – Crystal Murillo, Stacey Abrams, Christine Lui Chen, Jennifer Carroll Foy and Laura Moser – discuss the impact of last year’s election and why it prompted them to run for positions ranging from city council to the governor’s mansion. Some were involved in this year’s elections, while other are focused on 2018.

Nadia Hallgren directed the series and Mary Robertson executive produced.

You can watch the first four episodes now – for free – at topic.com/she-s-the-ticket. The last two episodes featuring Lui Chen and Crystal Murillo will be available Thursday, November 30.

Here’s episode one:
