7 Freshman Democrats to Watch
It’s not just Ocasio-Cortez: Here are 7 freshman Democrats to watch
The list includes the first black woman ever elected to Congress from Massachusetts and an openly gay Ivy League-educated lawyer from Kansas.
More than three dozen freshman Democrats will join the House next Congress — the biggest Democratic class in four decades and the most diverse group ever elected.
The incoming class boasts a range of backgrounds and ideologies, from liberal insurgents like Ocasio-Cortez to candidates who scored unexpected victories in deep-red districts long claimed by Republicans.
