Georgia sends their first Republican Woman to Congress. Handel makes note.

Karen Handel breaks a few glass ceilings as Georgia’s first Republican woman to hold a seat in Congress, pushing the female count to a historical high of 105 women now representing this great nation, as was mentioned by Kelly Dittmar of the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University.

As Handel spoke to a cheering crowd following her victory, a sense of pride for conservative women was heard, and Handel was sure to take note of her accomplishments as a Republican woman:

“Tomorrow the real work will begin, the hard work of governing and doing that in a civil responsible way that is in the best interest of every Georgian, every sixth district citizen, and every citizen of the United States of America as we prepare to send Georgia’s first Republican woman to Congress.”

Meanwhile, liberals cried as Georgia’s sixth district results came in and it was clear the Democratic nominee, Jon Ossoff, had lost – once again showing a party full of fleeting emotions and a lack of sound professionalism.

The highly contested special election rings in as the most expensive race in history, making the books for yet another record for Handel. $59.6 million was spent in total by candidates and political parties, including during both the primary and runoff phases according to IssueOne.

The highly sought after seat, previously filled by Republican Tom Price who is now Secretary of Health and Human Services, cost almost twice as much in campaigns than the second most expensive House election in Florida in 2012.

While Ossoff raised more within his own campaign, Handel received more outside help from super PAC’s and party committees. All in all, Osoff raised more than Handel by the millions. But as we see here, money doesn’t always buy the seat.

Townhall reported many feminist’s were outraged at Handel’s victory because of her views – those views being pro-life and other conservative standpoints.

It’s a shame “feminist’s” are incapable of supporting another woman’s accomplishments unless they line up with their liberal agendas.

Jill Filipovic was among the angry feminist’s speaking out against Handel’s policies, to which she resorted to slander, as is always the retort from such groups when confrontation erupts. Filipovic called Handel a “bigot” and advises anyone with views like Trump and Handel to be called the defamatory name.

However, Filipovic didn’t seem to want to mention that the voter turn-out for Trump was 52% of white women in America. It wasn’t a bunch of backwoods voters flooding the polls, but many educated college students and professionals who were unhappy with the previous administration’s help.

The offense Handel is charged with is not sticking up for “women’s rights”. Which is hardly the case – they’re just not the rights liberals have in mind.

Handel is working to increase jobs which women have disproportionately been represented in, stands for the safety of women and their children with her pro-life views, and now holds the obvious position of showing conservative women they too have a place in the House.

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted about Handel’s victory, hoping that her conservative stance won’t halt the recognition of her accomplishments as a Republican woman headed to Congress:

“Our first female representative, Jeannette Rankin of Montana, was also Republican. In 1917 when she was elected she said, “I may be the first woman member of Congress, but I won’t be the last.””

Georgia has had 5 female representatives in Congress the New York Times reported, all of whom were Democrat. Currently, Republican women have a small representation in Congress, falling behind even Democratic women. With Handel elected we are looking more proportional.

Karen Handel has surely made a name for herself this election and it will be exciting to see how her newest victory will play out in future legislation. She has been a voice for conservative women and Republicans alike.

And as Rankin put it, she certainly won’t be the last.
