Meet the New Members of Congress

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Congressional Quarterly‘s CQpolitics.com has prepared a handy round-up of all those who got elected last night/this morning.

Notable trends include actual youth, like the 31-year-old new representative for Conn. There are 11 women on the list. In “battleground state” Pennsylvania, all victories went to Dems.

As it stands now, the Dems have picked up 27 House seats, 4 Senate seats, with of course two Senate seats still leaning toward the Dems but too close to call.

Stick to Mother Jones for updates.
