Nuñez, 47, told NBC News during the closing days of the campaign that being chosen as Lieutenant Governor is "a huge source of pride for me, for my family, but most importantly for my community.".She was born and raised in Miami to Cuban parents and is now Speaker Pro Tempore of the Florida House of Representatives.

If Deb Haaland won her congressional race in New Mexico, she would become the first Native American woman elected to Congress and if Democrat Kyrsten Sinema won in Arizona, she would become the country's first openly bisexual senator. With some 80 percent of precincts reporting, Ocasio-Cortez has earned 79 percent of the vote, far outpacing the 13 percent going to her Republican rival.

These wins were mostly fueled by the Democratic Party, which put a record numbers of women on the ballot.

Omar, a Somali-American was once a refugee, while Tlaib is the first Pakistani-American woman in congress.

"On the Democratic side, these races were viewed not only as a referendum on President Donald Trump, but also, in many cases, on his version of identity politics, which in its final days played to the fears of his base, a group that is largely white, male and Christian". The record previously belonged to Elise Stefanik who was elected to Congress at age 30 in 2014. Former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevy came out as gay while he was in office, and Oregon Governor Kate Brown, who is bisexual, won in 2016, but Jared Polis will be the first man to win a governorship as an out gay man. Polis has been in Congress since 2009.

Twenty-nine-year-old Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. Ocasio-Cortez rose to national prominence in June, when she unseated 10-term incumbent Representative Joe Crowley, the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House.

Sylvia Garcia and Veronica Escobar are Texas' first Latina congresswomen.

According to data compiled by The Associated Press, 237 women ran for the House as major-party candidates this year.

Idaho gubernatorial candidate Paulette Jordan also lost her race to become the country's first Native American governor. On Tuesday, James won her seat for New York State Attorney General. Missouri's Claire McCaskill and North Dakota's Heidi Heitkamp were both vulnerable as Democrats in deep red states, and a lot of people are pointing to their votes against Brett Kavanaugh as what cost them their elections. Many female Democratic House candidates who prevailed on Election Day ran in opposition to Trump or his policies.

There was also an historic gender gap that showed women more supportive of Democrats than Republicans. Women's issues are the economy, their education, their gun control.
