The presidential race may have been between two white men, but progress was made elsewhere with a record number of Native American women elected to the House of Representatives.
Democrats Sharice Davids, a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation representing Kansas, and Deb haaland (pictured), a Laguna Pueblo member representing New Mexico, retained her seats by becoming the first Native American women elected to Congress in 2018. Joining them is Republican Yvette Herrell, who is Cherokee and represents New Mexico .
Meanwhile, Sarah McBride, a Democrat, will become the first transgender state senator after winning her race in Delaware.
