Three women of multi racial heritage are running as Democrats for the US Senate, and are favored to win their races.
These three women are:
Tammy Duckworth of Illinois
Kamala Harris of California
Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada
Duckworth has a Chinese mother and white father and was born in Thailand; Harris has an Indian mother who migrated from India and a father of Jamaican heritage; Masto is a Latina of Mexican heritage.
All three are superbly qualified, and would bring to the Senate the first women of multi racial background, of other heritages than White Anglo Christian or Jewish.
Duckworth was severely wounded in Iraq, losing both legs and damaging her right arm, and is a true hero. She served in the Illinois and US Department of Veterans Affairs, and has been a Congresswoman from Illinois for the past four years.
Harris served as District Attorney of San Francisco and is now California Attorney General.
Masto was Attorney General of Nevada from 2007-2015.
Masto will have the toughest race, while Duckworth, and especially Harris, seem certain to win at this juncture.
The US Senate would become much more diverse and representative if these women are fortunate enough to be elected.
