Female Representation In Congress SURGES…But GOP Put Them There, Not Liberals

Even with irregularitiesinconsistencies, and issues with certain states, there are some silver linings in the 2020 electoral cloud that conservatives can celebrate.

As of this writing, the Senate still looks to remain in GOP control. While John Hickenlooper (D-CO) unseated incumbent Corey Gardner (R-CO), and Mark Kelly (D-AZ) seems to have bested Martha McSally (R-AZ), we have Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) who beat incumbent Doug Jones (D-AL), and John James (R-MI) is neck-and-neck to unseat incumbent Gary Peters (D-MI).

Massive amounts of money were poured into races to remove Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Lindsay Graham (R-SC), and Susan Collins (R-ME), but to no avail. All regained their seats by comfortable margins. John Cornyn (R-TX), and Joni Ernst (R-IA) also kept their seats.

Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) will face a runoff in her election. While we still are not sure whether Georgia goes to President Trump or former Vice President Joe Biden, conventional wisdom says she will probably hold the line for Republicans. If Loeffler wins, and James wins, Republicans maintain control of the Senate. That would be a positive outcome no matter who holds the White House.

Probably the most significant, but least publicized bright spot in this election cycle is that 12 new Republican women were elected in key races for the House of Representatives. Adding to the 10 GOP women incumbents who won their reelection bids.
