The 116th Congress (2019-2020) will set a record for the most minorities and women in Congress in American history.
Right now, in the 115th Congress, racial and ethnic minorities represent more than 45 percent of House Democrats, and women make up one third of the Democrats in the chamber.
Republicans on the other hand, have very few of either group right now, and not likely to have much more representation in the next Congress.
83 House members who are minorities right now are Democrats, while only 12 are Republicans.
There are 84 Women in the House, and about two thirds are Democrats.
The Senate has 9 members who are minorities, three African American, two Asian American, and four Hispanic American. Three of the nine (Tim Scott, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio) are Republicans, while the other six (Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Tammy Duckworth, Mazie Hirono, Bob Menendez, Catherine Cortez Masto) are Democrats.
There are 23 women in the Senate, with 6 being Republicans and 17 being Democrats.
America will have a much more representative Congress, not just a typical white male dominance as was the case in most of American history.
