“A record number of Republican women will serve in the House after the GOP ate into Democratic majority,” reads a post-election USA Today headline. The story goes on to report:

The incoming class includes Lauren Boebert, a Colorado gun-rights activist who knocked off five-term incumbent Scott Tipton in a GOP primary; Michelle Fischbach, a former Minnesota lieutenant governor who unseated 15-term Democrat Collin Peterson; and Native American businesswoman Yvette Herrell, who defeated Xochitl Torres Small, part of the Democrats' historic wave in 2018.

According to Tobias, the pro-life Republicans will have work to do thanks to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The liberal lawmaker is an outspoken pro-abortion Democrat who wants to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which would allow tax dollars to pay for abortion, among other pro-abortion plans.
