NEW MEXICO BECOMES THE FIRST STATE TO ELECT ALL WOMEN OF COLOR TO THE HOUSE
Officially, New Mexico has become a pioneer of the United States history, electing all women of color to the House. This historical moment involves representative Deb Haaland, Teresa Leger Fernandez and Yvette Herrell.
Haaland is one of the first Native American women who was elected to Congress two years ago in 2018. She now won her bid for reelection against Garcia Holmes.
Republican Yvette Herrell, who is a member of the Cherokee nation, got elected to the state’s 2nd Congressional District.
