Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wins Election In a Landslide

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at 29 is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress

The charge was led mostly by Democratic women whose victories all but ensure a US House that is younger and more diverse. Numerous 237 women on the ballot in this election were facing entrenched incumbents who typically enjoy a major advantage in fundraising and name recognition.

In January, both the U.S. Senate and U.S. House will feature a far different makeup than previous years, as voter turnout surged this cycle.

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

Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar both became America's first Muslim women to sit in the House of Representatives.

"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.

And of course we want to follow the rules, whether UEFA, FIFA or the Premier League", said the Spaniard, who joined City in 2016. Af for the FFP complaints, he stuck to the club's version: "I am part of the club and I support them completely".


When she won the primary, she denounced President Donald Trump as "a racist, misogynistic, truly empathy-bankrupt man".

OLATHE, KS - NOVEMBER 06: Democratic candidate for Kansas' 3rd Congressional District Sharice Davids speaks to supporters during an election night party on November 6, 2018 in Olathe, Kansas.

For the first time, the US Congress will have Muslim women - and two of them.

In the first major race called Tuesday night, Lou Leon Guerrero was elected as Guam's governor, becoming the first woman to do so. "We see problems as opportunities in our state of Colorado". Davids defeated incumbent Republican Kevin Yoder.

Polis, who is in a same-sex marriage, chose not to make his sexual orientation a talking point on the campaign trail, but his history-making run for governor came as part of this year's "rainbow wave", an influx of LGBTQ candidates across the country who are running for office.

One juror was excused after she said she couldn't be impartial, saying, 'I feel very bad about drugs'. The judge has ordered the jury to remain anonymous and partially sequestered.


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.

If Deb Haaland won her congressional race in New Mexico, she would become the first Native American woman elected to Congress and if Democrat Kyrsten Sinema won in Arizona, she would become the country's first openly bisexual senator. Stacey Abrams, one of 16 women running for governor this year, remains in a tight contest in Georgia.

This year's election is drawing comparisons to the 1992 elections dubbed the "Year of the Woman", when a record number of women won seats in Congress, bringing total representation to around 10 percent.

The result is nevertheless impressive for the 28-year-old former bartender and self-described democratic socialist, who rocketed onto the national stage by knocking off 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) in June's Democratic primary.

Ocasio-Cortez has said she is still paying off her student loans and until recently had no health insurance. Also in the Senate, Republican Marsha Blackburn will become Tennessee's first woman senator.

Temporary representation was with him for his court appearance again Tuesday, and CNN has reached out to the attorney for comment. Treu and his passenger later told investigators they had been huffing from a computer keyboard cleaner they'd purchased that day.


Women hold 23 of the 100 U.S. Senate seats, and this year 23 women are on the ballot for the chamber.
