CHICAGO (NewsNation Now) — The self-described “squad” is back. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) have been reelected to the U.S. House of Representatives.
All four members of the progressive squad of Democratic congresswomen have secured a second term. The women have championed issues of health care, climate change, racism, sexism and discrimination.
“Our sisterhood is resilient,” Omar tweeted.
“Serving New York-14 and fighting for working-class families in Congress has been the greatest honor, privilege and responsibility of my life,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Thank you to the Bronx and Queens for re-electing me to the House despite the millions spent against us, and trusting me to represent you once more.”
Pressley announced her win in a tweet Tuesday.
“Together, we have fought for our shared humanity,” Pressley wrote. “I believe in the power of us. And we’re just getting started.”
The women forged to continue their fight on the hill.
