Women and Minorities Lead the GOP's Freshman Class


Women and minorities lead the Republican Party’s incoming freshman class in the U.S. House of Representatives, following the Democrat Party’s stunning lack of a “blue wave.”

Republicans have flipped 10 House seats, surpassing expectations of Democrats, some of whom believed they would expand their majority in the House by “double digits.” So far, all of the Republicans who have flipped House Democrat seats are either a woman or a minority:

Republicans have now flipped 10 seats in the House:

CA-48 Michelle Steel
FL-27 Maria Elvira Salazar
FL-26 Carlos Gimenez
IA-01 Ashley Hinson
MI-03 Peter Meijer
MN-07 Michelle Fischbach
NY-11 Nicole Malliotakis
NM-02 Yvette Herrell
OK-05 Stephanie Bice
SC-01 Nancy Mace

So far, 100% of the ten Republicans who have flipped Dem House seats have been women and/or minorities. In 2018, that was true of just 7% of the GOP freshman class. https://t.co/VKgfLNla3V
