• CNN Praises Republican Women As “The New Face Of Congress”

    Now that the dust has settled and all of the votes have been counted, it’s clear to see that Republican women won big on election night. It’s even easier to see that the Democrats’ “War on Women” campaign has lost most of its political steam.

    Governor Nikki Haley won in a landslide in South Carolina. Susana Martinez easily won reelection as Governor of New Mexico.

    And when it comes to new the Congressional Republicans, CNN is saying women are the new face of Washington D.C. (See video above!)

    First they shine the spotlight on Congresswoman-elect Mia Love.

    Utah voters sent the first ever female black Republican to Congress. Mia Love’s parents immigrated to America from Haiti with less than ten dollars to their name. Love served two terms as a local city councilwoman and she was mayor of Saratoga Springs from January 2010 – December 2013.

    Mia Love’s first date with her husband Jason Love was to a gun range.

    Next on CNN’s Republican women highlight reel is Shelley Moore Capito.

    On Tuesday night, Capito became the junior United States Senator-elect from West Virginia–a historic feat. Capito had been serving West Virginians as U.S. Representative since 2001. West Virginia hasn’t sent a Republican to Washington D.C. in more than 56 years. And when they did, they sent a woman. Wow.

    In Iowa, the voters there sent the first woman and the first female combat veteran to Washington to represent them as their Senator.

    Joni Ernst was a viral rock star candidate. She had mass appeal and was much more disciplined than her veteran opponent and incumbent Congressman Bruce Braley.

    And one day after winning a U.S. Senate seat, Joni Ernst was reporting for duty at her National Guard base.


    And let us not forget the GOP’s other female Congressional rock star, New York Confresswoman-elect Elise Stefanik. She destroyed her female Democratic opponent to become the youngest woman elected to Congress in history.
