Young progressives, VP brother to enter US Congress

Young progressives, VP brother to enter US Congress”

ME and South Dakota also elected their first female governors with Janet Mills and Kristi Noem, respectively.

Once you add those to the handful of women Senators and Governors who did not have to face the electorate in these midterms (as only some positions were contested), the proportion of women now in power goes up to around 22 per cent.

Meanwhile, at 31, Democrat Lauren Underwood also won her race to become a Congresswoman. BOSTON, MA - OCTOBER 01: Boston City Councilor and Democratic congressional candidate Ayanna Pressley speaks at a rally calling on Sen.

But with record numbers of women nominated for the house, the Senate and for Governor, Tuesday was always set to be a historic day for women.

At 29, staunch left-winger Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress and one of the youngest members ever.

Women in general had a record-breaking night in the House, with more than 90 of them expected to join the House's freshman class.

"We are the ones we've been waiting for!" "We ran to make change".

"Until this heartless administration is held accountable for their numerous injustices, we will not stop", tweeted Donna Shalala, a former Clinton cabinet minister who defeated a Republican woman in a Florida congressional seat by championing public education, health care and social security.

A swath of candidates broke down barriers with victories in Tuesday's midterm elections - sending seismic shifts through the halls of Congress and across state-level contests. With the win, Rojas said, the progressive movement challenging the establishment of the Democratic Party has shown it "can unseat Democrats who are ideologically and demographically out-of-touch with their voters and forced Democratic elected across the country to stiffen their spines". We spoke with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez about her plans for Congress.

What is already the most diverse Congress ever will become even more so after Tuesday's elections, which broke barriers of race and gender. Wallace also suggested Ingraham was being hypocritical, saying that if she gives Republicans credit for keeping the Senate, she must also give the Democrats credit for flipping the House.

Democrats Rashida Tlaib of MI and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota will be the first Muslim women to serve in Congress.

There are more women in office now than ever before, and this is only the beginning.

Yesterday's election will ensure that the U.S. House of Representatives looks a lot more like the country it represents.

(3) Marsha Blackburn became the first female US Senator from Tennessee.

In the Senate, female Democrats lost some important races.

On Tuesday night Democrats won control of the House, delivering a major blow to Trump in the first election since he became president in 2016.
