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.

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.
