Shattered glass ceilings: Historic firsts!
Here are just a few of the DFA-endorsed candidates who made history on Tuesday night:
- Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar became the first Muslim women ever elected to Congress
- Deb Haaland became one of the first Native American women ever elected to Congress
- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress
- Veronica Escobar became one of Texas's first Latina Congresswomen
If there's one clear message from Democratic victories in 2018, it's that the future of the Democratic Party lies with the candidates, campaigns, and voters of the New American Majority leading the fight for multi-racial inclusive populism.
