House GOP Majority Adds More Youth, Diversity

Republicans have won back the majority in the House, and it is with a group that is younger and more diverse than in previous years.

The growing number of women and people of color in the conservative-led House offers a stronger representation of the American people.

"In Texas, Rep.-elect Wesley Hunt won a newly drawn congressional seat based in the Houston suburbs. Hunt, a Black, 41-year-old former helicopter pilot, told Fox News Digital he was proud to be part of a new generation of conservative leadership," according to Fox News.

"We took our freshman class picture this week and I was just astounded by how diverse this group is," said Hunt. "But it's not just about those that won, look at how many women, combat veterans, African Americans and Hispanics ran under the Republican banner this cycle."

The number of women from diverse backgrounds is also a growing development within the GOP House.

"Hailing from vastly different backgrounds with a range of expertise, America's newly-elected representatives, including GOP women, will bring unique perspectives to Washington, D.C." Human Events reported.

"Consider Monica De La Cruz, who is a small business owner and single mother of two children from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. A political newcomer, De La Cruz will become the first Republican in history to represent Texas' 15th Congressional District," it added.

Other notable examples include Virginia Republican Jen Kiggans who defeated Democrat Elain Luria. Kiggans is a military veteran and was a nurse before running for the House.

Even liberal Oregon selected a female conservative, with Lori Chavez-DeRemer, the first Hispanic woman to serve in the House from Oregon.

The future looks bright for the GOP as the party seeks to better represent the nation and lead in the days ahead.

It is quite ironic that the Democrat Party, which claims to be about diversity, is lagging behind the Republican Party on adding more minorities and women to Congress.

We should also note how horribly these Republican minorities are treated by their counterparts in Congress. That used to prevent minorities from stepping up to openly declare their ideology, but that trend is clearly changing.

If this trend continues, it spells bad news for Democrats in future elections.
