Will a Texas senator’s perfectly pointed inquiry on the senate floor edge out State Representative Kathy Hawken’s vocal opposition to a bad bill in North Dakota? Will Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn defy the odds as the first female Gynotician of the Year?

Stay tuned each week when we’ll be announcing the winners at noon EST for the following categories:
