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

It's Official: Unabashed Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Now Youngest Woman Ever Elected to Congress

At 29, she is the youngest woman elected to Congress. According to data compiled by The Associated Press, 237 women ran for the House as major-party candidates this year.

- Cindy Axne and Abby Finkenauer: Iowa's first women in the U.S. House.

Joining Tlaib's place in history is current Minnesota state Rep. Ilhan Omar, who is poised to become the first Somali-American in Congress.

Ilhan Omar, a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives, is one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress and will serve Minnesota's 5th District in the House.

"We've had the "Year of the Woman" before and it has been a one-night sensation, but this is about filling the pipeline", she said. On Tuesday, James won her seat for New York State Attorney General.

Democrats Debra Haaland and Sharice Davids became the first Native American female candidates to be elected into the House.

"Powered by a massive turnout of women and fuelled by our incredible candidates, House Democrats gained several seats in the heartland", Democratic representative Cheri Bustos of IL said in a statement Tuesday night after House control was called for Democrats. They also picked up two more firsts for Congress: Tlaib is the first-ever Palestinian-American and Omar the first Somalian-American to serve in that office. "And that's exactly what this is, not a campaign or an Election Day but a movement... for social, economic and racial justice". "We see problems as opportunities in our state of Colorado".

Pak television embarrasses Imran Khan with 'begging' slip-up
Siddiqui was interrogated by USA officials in Afghanistan when she grabbed a rifle and opened fire, shouting "death to Americans". Prosecutors in NY had called her an al Qaeda sympathiser and sought life imprisonment.


Former Democratic Senator Barbara Mikulski, one of only two women in the Senate at the time of Hill's testimony, said women's outrage at Hill's treatment by an all-male Senate committee motivated them "to run in numbers never heard before". "There will be a record number of women win; there will be a record number of women lose".

Davids mounted a longshot bid, challenging four-term Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder.

Davids is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation, and Haaland is an enrolled member of the Pueblo of Laguna, according to their respective campaigns. Ocasio-Cortez celebrated her victory in Queens last night.

Ocasio-Cortez defeated New York Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in the primary election earlier this year. 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.

In races still too close to call, Abrams, if elected, would become the first female African-American governor in USA history, and in Arizona's competitive Senate race, the state will elect either Republican Martha McSally or Democrat Kyrsten Sinema as the state's first woman to serve in the chamber.

After some key Republican victories, Ingraham concluded that the reason Republicans were winning was that they've embraced President Trump, whereas the reason Democrats were losing was that they've become the party of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic socialist who was elected to Congress Tuesday.
