first_img– Advertisement – Election night victories by Representative Deb Haaland, Democrat of New Mexico, in the state’s First District, Yvette Herrell, a Republican, in its Second District, and Teresa Leger Fernandez, a Democrat, in its Third District, mean that New Mexico’s entire House delegation will be made up of women of color. In the Senate Cori Bush, a progressive who toppled a member of the Democratic Party establishment during her primary, cruised to victory over Anthony Rogers, a Republican, and became the first Black woman elected to represent Missouri in Congress. “To the Black women, the Black girls, the nurses, the essential workers, the single mothers — this is our moment,” Ms. Bush said in her victory speech.Ritchie Torres, a Democrat who is Afro-Latino, swept aside his Republican opponent and became the first openly gay Black man elected to Congress. He will replace Representative José Serrano in New York’s 15th Congressional District. (Mondaire Jones, another Democrat who is also Black and gay, is ahead in his race to fill the seat in New York’s 17th Congressional District that is being vacated by Representative Nita Lowey.) “I am hopeful that there’s a young person desperately in need of that message, who, just before going to bed, looked online and saw this result,” Ms. McBride said. “For that person, they know that change is possible and things can get better.” – Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement – The 2020 election saw a diverse set of candidates in races across the country, even though the presidential contest was between two septuagenarian white men.
