13 GOP women join the House, dominating congressional elections, making history

Second Amendment


At least 13 Republican women are joining the 117th U.S. Congress after dominating the 2020 elections, making history for the highest number of women in the House of Representatives.

Republicans have been watching their numbers in the House rise, and six of the eight seats flipped red were owed to women. According to The Washington Post, House Republican leaders estimate more than a dozen women could be added to the current 13, doubling the number in their caucus.

The GOP congresswomen-elects are marking history themselves – South Carolina’s Nancy Mace being the first female elected in her state and Florida’s Kat Cammack being the youngest GOP woman elected – and are representing American women across the country.
