According to Politico, there’s a flood of women, minorities and first-time candidates running for office this year. This means Congress could become much more diverse following the 2018 midterms. Currently, women only make up about a fifth of Congress, but that could soon change. In Idaho, Democrat Paulette Jordan could be the country’s first Native American governor and her state’s first female governor. Meanwhile, in Vermont, Christine Hallquist could become the country's first openly transgender governor. In Georgia, Democrat Stacey Abrams is competing in a down-to-the-wire race against Republican Brian Kemp. If Abrams wins, she would make history as the country’s first black female governor. There are also two candidates who have a good shot at becoming the first Native American woman in Congress: Deb Haaland in New Mexico’s 1st District and Sharice Davids in Kansas’ 3rd District.
