LGBT Native American Sharice Davids wins Kansas race

Deb Haaland: First Native American woman elected to Congress

Another fact that makes Sharice Davids win both unique and liberating is that she identifies as a lesbian; which also makes her the first openly LGBT member of Congress from Kansas.

Kansas Democrat Sharice Davids made history on Tuesday by becoming not only the state's first openly gay woman of Congress but also the first Native American person elected on Tuesday. Davids, who once tried out for "The Ultimate Fighter 20", defeated David Yoder to capture the Kansas City seat, the first time a Democrat has won the spot in a decade. "We know there are so many of us who welcome everyone, who see everyone and who know that everyone should have the opportunity to succeed".

Davids is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation and Haaland is an enrolled member of the Pueblo of Laguna, according to their respective campaigns. Davids was 1-1 as a pro and 5-1 as an amateur in MMA.

Both candidates say they do not think the national attention will influence the outcome of the election. But Caudill, chief deputy in the county property valuation office, eventually won over the Democrats.

Tom Cole, of the Chickasaw tribe represents Oklahoma's fourth district, and Markwayne Mullin of the state's second district represents the state's second.

Cole, who has served the 4th Congressional District since 2003, won his re-election bid against Democrat Mary Brannon by more than 30 points. Other states eventually followed Arizona's lead, and in 1962, New Mexico was the last state to strike down unfair laws that prevented us from voting. They were granted the right to vote in 1962, almost 40 years after they were granted citizenship. "Her winning tonight will break the glass ceiling for future generations, for future young native women and girls", Mellor Willie, co-founder of 7Gen Leaders, told Time Magazine.

Tuesday night's wins have been years in the making, and they mark a significant turning point for Native Americans in this country. Davids and Haaland received support from the group.
