The chamber, already politically polarized, more than ever is going to be demographically polarized, too. There will be at least 57 female Democrats in the House, about 30 percent of the caucus. Republicans will have at least 20 women, less than 10 percent of their partyâs House majority, according to the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University in New Jersey. The final tally in a few states could add to that count. Democratic Hispanics are poised to outnumber their House Republican colleagues 23 to five, according to the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials Educational Fund. Black representatives should number 41 on the Democratic side of the aisle, the Congressional Black Caucus said. That compares with either one or two seats for black Republicans. âWhen voters and citizens look at the Democratic Party, what they see is America,â said Edwards. Republicans, who will continue to set the House agenda, could end up with just one woman heading a committee and a single woman in their top leadership ranks. On the other side of the U.S. Capitol, women will hold a record 20 Senate seats next year. That includes both Democrats and Republicans. âAbout a third of our caucus is going to be women,â Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told reporters in the Capitol. âItâs clear weâre the party of diversity,â the Nevada Democrat said.
