This can't possibly be correct. If you meant its first female Latino Congress persons, then that may well be true. But not their first Latino Congress persons ever. See Joaquin Castro, for example. Also, Charlie Gonzalez, Henry Bonilla, and Henry Cuellar, just to name a few.

Positive perspective on the midterm election

The liberals and mainstream media wanted everybody to believe that in 2018 there would be a Democratic tsunami wave. There wasn’t.
In the 1994 midterm elections Democratic president Bill Clinton lost 54 House seats, 8 Senate seats and 10 governorships. That was a tsunami.
In the 2010 midterm elections Democratic president Barack Obama lost 63 House seats, 6 Senate seats and 29 governorships. That was an even bigger tsunami. In the 2018 midterm elections Republican President Donald Trump lost a just over a couple dozen House seats (confirming the historical precedents), expanded robustly his Senate seats, while the number of governorships remains split. More importantly, the president won governorship races in swing states Florida and Ohio, which will be extremely beneficial for his reelection in 2020.
o, no tsunami in 2018. Rather than a blue wave, this was a “green wave.” The Democrats pumped-in extraordinary amounts of money to little or no avail.

The Democrats spent an enormous amount of money with few results. Republicans should be able to counter this next time.
Most of the Republicans who retired were never Trump RINOS who hated President Trump and wanted to undermine his presidency. Paul Ryan is gone. Hopefully, the new Republican leader will be more honest, more effective and support the president.
The larger majority in the Senate should last for 6 years at least. The backstabbers and prima donnas in the Senate like Flake and Corker are gone.

I'll be so damned happy when nonsense like this is no longer applicable to choosing a good candidate.

WTF is next, first half man / half dog elected?

this kind of identity politics is most of what is wrong with our current election process, the rest of what is wrong, is the goofs that keep bringing it up.
