In this week’s episode of “pretending conservative women don’t exist,” we saw Marie Claire put out a list of “50 Influential Women and Why They’re Voting” – all whom just so happened to be liberal women. The morning after the election, when Joe Scarborough from NBC kicked off his show with a list of female firsts, he failed to mention several glass ceilings that were shattered by Republican women this year. Since you won’t hear about it much in the mainstream media, check out these Republican women that are breaking barriers:
Blackburn defeated former Tennessee Governor, Phil Bredesen and will become Tennessee’s first female US Senator.
Kim defeated Gil Cisneros on Tuesday, becoming the first Korean-American woman ever elected to Congress.
McSally will become the first female US Senator from Arizona. She also served in the United States Air Force and is the first woman in American history to fly in combat.
IIvey became the first Republican woman elected as Governor in Alabama, and the second woman ever to win an Alabama gubernatorial race.
Núñez was elected Lieutenant Governor of Florida. She will be Florida’s first Latina Lieutenant Governor and the highest ranking Hispanic, female public-servant in Florida history.
Reynolds became the first woman to win an Iowa gubernatorial race
Smith will become the first female US Senator from Mississippi. Although it’s not official yet, she is heavily favored to win the Mississippi run-off election.
Noem defeated Billie Sutton and will become the first female Governor of South Dakota.
