Young progressives, VP brother to enter US Congress

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

They were powered mostly by a female-led resistance movement forged in opposition to the election of Donald Trump, though there were also notable victories among Republican women. Of these, 210 Democratic women and 63 Republican women remained nominees by Election Day. Davids defeated incumbent Republican Kevin Yoder.

This makes Ocasio-Cortez, who turned 29 last month, the youngest person ever elected to congress.

Women made history in the 2018 midterm elections. "This could be the beginning of a decade of the woman where you have more women running and moving up because you filled the pipeline". They mobilised on the grassroots level and played larger roles as donors than in previous election cycles.

For this wave of women leaders, the next few years are going to be about much more than stereotypical women's issues. Tlaib, a former member of the Michigan House of Representatives, faced two opponents in the race: Green Party candidate D. Etta Wilcoxon and Working Class Party candidate Sam Johnson. Heightened political activism in the Trump era brought out many more men running for office, too, and numerous female candidates were Democrats running in districts that are gerrymandered or all but assured to vote Republican.

In victory speeches across the country, women acknowledged the groundbreaking year.

Ilhan Omar, a Somali refugee, won a House seat in a heavily Democratic district in Minneapolis, where she will succeed Keith Ellison, himself the first Muslim elected to Congress. "Ilhan Omar. So many of us, we're all mums", she said. However, the historical significance of this evening is not lost on me. And so, by chance, I'm also making history today.

With some races yet to be called, 95 women had been elected to the House as of early Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, the second features one continuous screen on the exterior. "We rethought the anatomy of a smartphone display". The South Korean tech giant is among a handful of firms that have flagged foldable phones as a coming to market soon.

Apple cancels iPhone Xr production boost
This news arrives shortly after Apple has made a decision to stop sharing units sales on individual product lines. It's also possible that more people are opting for other iPhones , leaving Apple to modify its original plan.

MA and CT will also send black women to Congress as firsts for their states, while Arizona and Tennessee are getting their first female senators. Dean Heller. Arizona also remains uncalled, but both candidates are women.

Tennessee gained the state's first woman in the Senate as Marsha Blackburn defeated former Gov. Phil Bredesen. This year, women tied the record for most governor's seats women have ever held - nine - a number that was previously reached in 2004 and 2007. Flake is scheduled to give a talk at the Forbes 30 under 30 event in Boston after recently calling for a one week pause in the confirmation process to give the Federal Bureau of Investigation more time to investigate sexual assault allegations.

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.

More than 100 women were projected to win seats in the House of Representatives, easily shattering the record.

"He just laughed, but after Congress repealed the prohibition law in 1991, and I was named as one of seven women who would be put through fighter training, he looked me up and said he was amazed I had accomplished my goal.". Sylvia Garcia and Veronica Escobar are Texas' first Latina congresswomen.

According to Guardian, winners of seats in the House include Latina congresswomen from Texas, the Democrats' Veronica Escobar and Sylvia Garcia, while Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of MI will be the first Muslim congresswomen.

Before Tuesday's elections, women made up a record 20% of Congress - 23% of the Senate and 19% of the House.
