Horn taps network of women, young people for upset win

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A Democratic Oklahoma attorney tapped into a network of enthusiastic women and young people in an increasingly diverse capital city to pull off one of the midterm elections’ biggest upsets.

Kendra Horn snatched a congressional seat in deep-red Oklahoma that had been in Republican hands for four decades.

The victory capped a historic night for female candidates who ran for office, and won, in record numbers across the U.S.

Horn became only the third woman ever elected to Congress from Oklahoma, a state that ranks among the lowest in the nation for women in elective office. But Tuesday saw a dramatic turnaround, especially in Oklahoma City, where women won races up and down the ballot.
