Democratic women flipped more than a dozen Republican seats, helping to seal the party's incoming majority in the House.
When the 116th Congress is sworn in early next year, it will include more female representatives than ever.
As of Wednesday morning, 98 women won seats in the House. That breaks the current session's record of 84.
The female victories spanned the country, from Virginia to Iowa to Oklahoma. What many of them had in common: suburban districts across red and blue states electing women newcomers.
In Kansas' 3rd District, Sharice Davids unseated GOP Rep. Kevin Yoder. She is a Cornell law graduate and former mixed martial arts fighter. She will be the first lesbian with Native American ancestry to serve in Congress.
Here are a few more of the women who grabbed Republican seats:
- Abigail Spanberger in Virginia's 7th District
- Kendra Horn in Oklahoma's 5th District
- Mary Gay Scanlon in Pennsylvania's 5th District
- Abby Finkenauer Iowa's 1st District
- Elaine Luria in Virginia's 2nd Disrict
- Debbie Mucarsel-Powell in Florida's 26th District
- Cindy Axne in Iowa's 3rd District
- Haley Stevens in Michgan's 11th District
- Susan Wild in Pennsylvania's 7th District
- Ann Kirkpatrick in Arizona's 2nd District
- Lauren Underwood in Illinois' 14th District
- Angie Craig in Minnesota's 2nd District
- Elissa Slotkin in Michgan's 8th District
- Lizzie Fletcher Texas' 7th District
The trend didn't hold in the Senate. While Jacky Rosen did beat Dean Heller in Nevada, flipping the state blue, Josh Hawley unseated Claire McCaskill in Missouri and Kevin Cramer took a North Dakota seat from Heidi Heitkamp. In Tennessee, Marsha Blackburn held onto a Republican seat, beating Phil Bredesen.
The gubernatorial races looked more like the House. Of seven gubernatorial races that turned red to blue, four were won by women: Michelle Lujan Grisham in New Mexico, Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan, Janet Mills in Maine, and Laura Kelly in Kansas.
