Sharice Davids Wins Kansas House Race

Deb Haaland makes history Becomes first Native American woman to serve in Congress

With all precincts counted, Davids won 53.3 percent of the vote against Yoder's 44.2 percent in Kansas' 3rd Congressional District.

The projected victories for the two Native American women mark a milestone in the USA political system.

Deb Haaland will be replacing fellow Democratic Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham in New Mexico; Grisham's electoral seat was vacated after she made a decision to contest for governor, while Sharice Davids will Kansas GOP Representative Kevin Yoder's electoral seat.

Chad Griffin, president of LGBT+ rights group Human Rights Campaign, congratulated Davids on her historic victory in a tweet: "A$3 huge and historic pro-equality victory!"

Deb Haaland has become the first Native American woman elected Congress after winning New Mexico's first congressional district on Tuesday. As a result, most Native Americans were disenfranchised until 1948, when the Arizona Supreme Court struck down a provision that stopped its Native American citizens from exercising their right. "Congratulations to this trailblazer and new member of Congress, Sharice Davids!"


From a failed attempt at making it on "The Ultimate Fighter" to making political history on Election Day. Add to their wins those of down-ballot candidates such as Peggy Flanagan (White Earth Nation Band of Ojibwe, elected lieutenant governor of Minnesota) and Debra Lekanoff (Alaska Native, elected to Washington state's House of Representatives), and we have even more cause for celebration.

With these women in office, Americans can expect an indigenous version of leadership: reciprocity that begins with the art of listening. It's easy to see why this is important to her, as New Mexico is a region at risk in terms of environmental contamination.

Sharice Davids speaks to members of the media after casting her ballot on November 6, 2018 in Shawnee, Kansas. Tlaib was famously escorted from a Trump rally in 2016 as she shouted questions at the candidate, asking him if he had ever read the constitution.

7Gen Leaders is a Super PAC formed this year to help Native Americans.

Sharice Davids celebrates on stage with supporters during an election night party on November 6, 2018 in Olathe, Kansas. Davids, who graduated from Cornell University, began fighting as an amateur in 2006 and turned professional in 2013.
