This is an amazing step in the right direction…

Because their U.S House Delegation will consist of nothing but women of color.

And it just goes to show how our country is finally trying to amend the problem that we have with racism.

This isn’t the only exciting news that has been announced in the last twenty-four hours.

And according to the Independent, polls showed that Biden and his vice presidential nominee, Kamala Harris, lead the way, being favored amongst 66% of voters.

Other polls predicted results that opposed each other, some thinking our current president would be re-elected, while others rounded up that we would have a Democrat on the throne.

And the first results of the 2020 election rapidly began flooding in.

It was quickly confirmed that Trump won in a number of states, including Indiana, Kentucky, and Alabama, while Biden won over the West Coast states, such as California, Washington, and Oregon.  

At the time of writing, Trump calls a win with 51.3% of the vote, while Biden had 47.8%.

He has secured Ohio, a state that has predicted every president since 1964. As per projections from NBC News and Fox News, Trump is projected to win in Ohio, which has predicted every president since 1964.

The Republican senator confirmed her re-election.

“We knew this was going to go long, but who knew we would go into maybe tomorrow morning, maybe even longer!” Biden said. “But we feel good about where we are. I’m here to tell you tonight we believe we’re on track to win this election.”

It was quickly deleted from the social media platform.

Trump wins the crucial seat, earning him 38 electoral points.

In a speech, he expressed a worry that ballots would be found at “4 o’clock in the morning” which he didn’t think should be counted.

He followed up his wish to close voting by suggesting he would be taking the matter to the Supreme Court. Trump said: “As far as I am concerned, we have already won.”

In a huge turn of events, Biden is predicted to win the state of Arizona, which will secure him a crucial 11 electoral votes. It’s a battleground state that Trump won 4 years prior.

The state has previously only ever backed 1 other Democratic candidate in the last 72 years, so this is a huge event for Biden and his party tonight.

Biden defeated Trump, winning 3 of the state’s 4 Electoral College votes.

“The president’s statement tonight about trying to shut down the counting of duly cast ballots was outrageous, unprecedented, and incorrect,” said Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon in a statement: “It was outrageous because it is a naked effort to take away the democratic rights of American citizens. “It was unprecedented because never before in our history has a president of the United States sought to strip Americans of their voice in a national election. Having encouraged Republican efforts in multiple states to prevent the legal counting of these ballots before Election Day, now Donald Trump is saying these ballots can’t be counted after Election Day either. “And it was incorrect because it will not happen. The counting will not stop. It will continue until every duly cast vote is counted. Because that is what our laws — the laws that protect every Americans’ constitutional right to vote — require. “We repeat what the Vice President said tonight: Donald Trump does not decide the outcome of this election. Joe Biden does not decide the outcome of this election. The American people decide the outcome of this election. And the democratic process must and will continue until its conclusion.”

Surpassing Clinton’s 65,853,625 with 65,881,145 votes.

Andahl died of COVID-19 last month aged fifty-five, but the election results in North Dakota showed the Bismarck-area district going to both him and Dave Nehring.

The team of 4 congresswomen, Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, also nicknamed “The Squad” have all been projected to win their re-election in their respective states.

New Mexico’s U.S House Delegation will consist entirely of women of color.

Rep. Deb Haaland (New Mexico-1), Republican Yvette Herrell (New Mexico-2), and Democrat Teresa Leger Fernandez (New Mexico-3) each won their district races.

And she is a citizen of the Pueblo of Laguna, a tribe in New Mexico. Before taking office, she was chairwoman of New Mexico’s Democratic Party and a community organizer.

“We have an extremely divisive president who disparages so many people,” she told The New York Times after her 2018 win.

Yesterday was a rematch of their 2018 race, in which Torres Small beat Herrell by just 1.8 points, flipping the open seat, which had been historically red. This year, the seat was considered one of the Democrats’ most vulnerable.

“I want people to vote for me because of my experience, what I bring to the table, not because I have a portion of Native American blood in me,” Herrell told The Albuquerque Journal in 2018.

According to her campaign website, she is a career attorney focused on tribal and Hispanic civil rights.
