REPUBLICAN WOMEN Set to Make History Tonight
Republican Mia Love is favored to win her Congressional race in Utah.
She will be the first African-American Republican woman elected to Congress.
Republican Elise Stefanik is set to become the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.
And, Republican Joni Ernst is set to become the first female elected to Congress from Iowa. Joni will also be the first female combat veteran ever elected to Congress.
The New York Post reported:
An upstate New York Republican is slated Tuesday to shatter the congressional record of former Brooklyn Democratic Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman as the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.
Elise Stefanik, 30, is favored to win in New York’s upstate 21st District and make history as the youngest female to win a seat in the House. Holtzman was sworn in at age 31 in 1973 at a time when women weren’t even allowed in the congressional gym…
…In Utah, Mia Love is strongly favored to become the first African-American Republican woman elected to Congress…
…The biggest prize could go to Iowa Republican Joni Ernst, who has momentum in the critical race that could determine control of the Senate. She’d become the first woman ever elected to Congress in Iowa and the first female combat veteran in the Senate, having served in Kuwait as a company commander in 2003 and 2004.
