Oklahomans Elect A Woman To Congress For Only The Third Time


    A Democratic attorney has become only the third woman ever elected to Congress from Oklahoma, a state that ranks among the lowest in the nation for women in elective office.
    Kendra Horn won the congressional seat in Oklahoma City that had been in Republican hands for four decades.
    Horn defeated retired Army officer and GOP Representative Steve Russell in one of the midterm elections' biggest upsets. Russell had been seeking a third term in office.
    A record number of women won seats in the U.S. House of Representatives Tuesday. Overwhelmingly they were Democrats, helping the party take control of the chamber.
