History is made in some Mid-term races around the country

Women were also elected governors in Iowa, Maine and South Dakota for the first time, as well as in the territory of Guam.

Jahana Hayes is the first black woman elected to represent CT in Congress. Hayes, the 2016 National Teacher of the Year, will be serving Connecticut's 5th Congressional District, which includes areas in the northwestern part of the state. For example, the next Congress will feature a record number of women of color, as well as a record number of non-incumbent women, according to the Rutgers University Center for American Women and Politics.

Blackburn, a Republican member of Congress who aligned herself closely with Trump and his policies during this race, defeated popular former Democratic governor Phil Bredesen in a tight race by 10 points.

Record numbers of women and ethnic minorities ran for office in 2018, paving the way for a number of historic landmarks on Tuesday night.

Overall, the number of Republican women serving in Congress next term will slightly dip, partially because some female incumbents and candidates lost.

As Breitbart News reported, if chain migration is not ended - as President Trump has demanded - the US electorate will forever be changed, with between seven to eight million new foreign-born individuals being eligible to vote because of chain migration, and overall an additional 15 million new foreign-born voters.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - the 29-year-old socialist who became a media darling over the summer after beating a 10-term NY incumbent in the Democratic primary - is headed to the U.S. House of Representatives with a resounding victory in Tuesday's general election, Yahoo News reported.

In defeating Democrat Phil Bredesen, GOP Rep. Marsha Blackburn will become Tennessee's first woman senator, MA sent the state's first black woman to Congress in Democrat Ayanna Pressley and Texas elected their first two Latinas to Congress, sending Democrats Veronica Escobar of El Paso and Sylvia Garcia of Houston to the House.

As Breitbart News has reported, Democrats have increasingly gained strongholds in congressional districts due to booming foreign-born populations.

Also in the House, Democrats Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of MI will be the first Muslim women to serve in Congress.

In Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, Ilhan Omar - a Somali immigrant - won with 78 percent of the vote in midterm elections despite her far-left radical record.

Democrat house candidate Sharice Davids reacts before speaking to supporters at a victory party in Olathe, Kan., Nov. 6, 2018.

There are also now nine female governors, matching the record set in 2004.

The last time New York Rep. Joe Crowley faced a primary challenge, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was a teenager.

With results still coming in, 94 women have won or are projected to win their House races as of early Wednesday morning, up from the current 84.

On Tuesday night Democrats won control of the House, delivering a major blow to Trump in the first election since he became president in 2016.

"Thanks to you, tomorrow will be a new day in America", Nancy Pelosi, House Democratic leader, said.
