Districts with Large Foreign-Born Populations Sent Far-Left Democrats to Congress

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wins election to New York’s 14th congressional district

Nine women will call various governors' mansions across the US home.

We'd been hearing for months about the record number of women running for office, and last night, voters turned out for them.

In her campaign platform, Ocasio-Cortez promotes universal job guarantees, fully funded public schools and universities, paid family and sick leave and housing as a human right.

If more than 84 of those women candidates won on Tuesday, it would set a record for the number of women serving in the House.

"The more Americans who vote, the more our elected leaders look like America", said former president Barack Obama, praising the record number of women, a surge in minority lawmakers and record voter turnout.

MI governor-elect Gretchen Whitmer on Wednesday attributed her success and that of other women to outworking their opponents and "staying focused on the dinner table issues that really matter to families".

In New York, Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez became the youngest woman elected to Congress at just 29 years old.

The first Native American and Muslim congresswomen are heading to the House of Representatives, and MA has its first black congresswoman, while Arizona and Tennessee are getting their first female senators.

Letitia James is the first black woman elected to a statewide office in NY.

First Native American woman in Congress: Two Native American women elected will become the first indigenous people seated in Congress - Sharice Davids in Kansas and Haaland in New Mexico.

In Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, Ilhan Omar - a Somali immigrant - won with 78 percent of the vote in midterm elections despite her far-left radical record. "The first role of women as military flyers was during World War II as Women Airforce Service Pilots, an organization disbanded after the war", Colonel McSally said. In the House, 96 women have reportedly won or are projected to win their races.

Ocasio-Cortez, a community organizer and former bartender, will represent New York's 14th Congressional District, which covers parts of the Bronx and Queens. Women are also more likely to identify as Democrats or lean Democratic, according to a 2018 Pew Research Center survey.

The Democrats may not have gotten quite the blue wave they were hoping for ー but for women in politics, Election Day was an indisputable success.

First Hispanic woman to Congress from Texas: There are two women in Texas whose victories will make them the first Hispanic women from the Lone Star state to go to Congress. Democrats Veronica Escobar and Sylvia Garcia both secured election victories.
