We have the first African-American elected to the Senate from a “Southern State” in 133-years. He is also the first African-American to ever be elected to both the House and then to the Senate. We have the first Haitian-American ever elected to Congress. The first female combat veteran is heading to the Senate–along with the first Iraq and Afghanistan Wars veteran elected to that chamber. Then there is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress–a 30-year old from upstate New York. And speaking of young, an 18-year old West Virginia college co-ed has become the nation’s youngest State lawmaker.
