For the first time the number of women in Congress will break 100. According to the Washington Post, the post-election total stands at 101, but could grow. While most of the women in Congress are still Democrats, there were some new, exciting women elected on Tuesday.
Joni Ernst popped onto the national stage with this video where she announced that she grew up on a hog farm castrating hogs with parents who taught her how to be fiscally conservative:
Ernst, the newest senator from Iowa, was elected on Tuesday to replace retiring senator Tom Harkin. She is a true “conservative’s conservative” candidate. She is a 21 year veteran of the Army National Guard, a staunch pro-lifer, and a fiscally responsible choice. Democrats had hoped that her conservative views would be too far right for the purple state, but they were wrong. She cruised past Rep. Bruce Baley, and hopefully will truly be “cutting some pork,” when she arrives in Washington.
Mia Love is the newly elected congresswoman from Utah’s 4th Congressional District. She wants to repeal Obamacare. She is pro-life, and she vows to defend the Second Amendment. She’s a “typical Republican”. Except she isn’t typical at all. She is the first black Republican woman -the first Haitian American- to be elected. She isn’t afraid to go on the offense against the Obama administration, either.
“President Obama’s version of America is a divided one — pitting us against each other based on our income level, gender, and social status,” she said. “His policies have failed!”
Mia Love proves that Republicans are neither sexist, nor are they racist.
On Tuesday, the voters in New York’s 21st open district elected Elise Stefanik. At 30, she is the youngest female to be elected. Stefanik is viewed by many as a new face and image for the GOP. She is no stranger to Washington. Elise worked in the Bush Administration on the Domestic Policy Council, was the debate director on Rep. Paul Ryan’s vice presidential campaign, and helped conceive the Republican National Committee’s platform in 2012.
These three strong conservative women are heading to Washington to help clean up the mess made by Obama and the Democrats. They all are strong, independent, and prove that the “old white male” stereotype of the Republican party is gone, and they are about to take on the party that truly discriminates against women and minorities. Good Luck, Gals!
It is election day; and what a pivotal and momentous day this will be if Democrats are finally routed from their entrenched power seats in the Senate….
Rep. John Conyers, the Democrat from Michigan, has been representing a large portion of Detroit for 24 terms. His campaign team neglected to follow Michigan election laws….
