Change has come to the House of Representatives with the election of Democratic candidate Cori Bush. She defeated Representative William “Lacy” Clay, who held the seat since 2001.
She will be the first Black woman to hold the seat for Missouri's first congressional district. It’s not only a win for the spirit of diversity but also for women’s equality.
Bush expressed an interest in politics after seeing injustice against the Black community. She took to Twitter after her victory to express more thoughts on this subject.
