12 People Who Made History In The 2018 Elections



After the 2016 elections, there was a tremendous uproar around the country that those in power just didn’t really represent many people in the country. And so activists, many of them new to the political process, started organizing. They joined local political groups, formed new organizations and even ran for office. 

The result, after Tuesday’s midterm elections, is government that looks more like the nation. A record number of women are heading to Congress, and at all levels, there are more women and minorities ready to serve.
