Conservative, Pro-Life Women Make Big Gains in House Races

'We're so proud of these women who will be a bold voice for moms and unborn babies on Capitol Hill...'

Democrats led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., had hoped to expand their majority on Tuesday, but a string of races show Democrats losing ground rather than gaining it.

Conservative women, particularly, surged victory against their Democratic opponents, in what one pro-life group called a “stunning blow to Nancy Pelosi and her pro-abortion agenda.”

All 11 pro-life women incumbents won their reelection races, and 13 new pro-life women were elected to the House, with eight more races to be called.

“This is a resounding victory for pro-life women everywhere,” the Susan B. Anthony List said in a statement.

“We expect when all votes are counted and the races are called, we will have a record number of pro-life women serving in the next Congress,” the statement continued. “These gains are a repudiation of abortion extremism and further evidence that life is a winning issue in politics.”

Some of the new representatives-elect include: Maria Salazar in Florida, Yvette Herrell in New Mexico, Michelle Fischbach in Minnesota, Nancy Mace in South Carolina, Stephanie Bice in Oklahoma and Ashley Hinson in Iowa.

These races proved that the pro-life movement is a winning issue in important suburban districts that Democrats had targeted.

They also proved that Republicans’ chances under President Donald Trump were much better than Democrats had sought to lead voters to believe.

“House Republicans have outperformed all expectations, putting Democrats in tougher spots than they ever thought was possible,” Dan Conston, president of Congressional Leadership Fund, the super PAC tied to House Republicans, said in a statement.

Pelosi, however, downplayed concerns that Democrats could lose a significant margin in the House.

“We are in a situation where some of the states have just said we’re not counting any more until tomorrow morning and, of course, the West Coast has not chimed in yet, so there’s more to come,” she said late Wednesday.

Pollsters originally predicted that Democrats would pick up 10 House seats, but Republicans argued from the get-go that they’d be able to bring back the swing-areas Democrats won in 2018.

“There were about 8 million Trump voters from 2016 who didn’t show up in 2018 because President Trump wasn’t on the ballot—that’s one of the reasons we lost the House,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., said on PBS on Tuesday.

“If those eight million people, they’re going to vote for President Trump…that helps us win those seats back,” Scalise said.
