Dear freshmen lawmakers,
We did it!
After a fiercely contested election, we have finally begun to turn the tide back toward progressive politics.
Midterms usually are sparsely attended, but this year we had an unprecedented turnout. A total of 23 states had double-digit percentage-point increases compared with their 1982-2014 midterm election averages.
And the result is one of the largest and most diverse groups of freshman Congresspeople ever!
