Rock Island, IL- Tonight, after a surge of women voters powered Democrats to big gains across America’s Heartland leading to a New Democratic House Majority, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos issued the following statement:


“Today, Americans put their faith back in Democrats to bring responsibility and accountability back to Washington. Powered by a massive turnout of women and fueled by our incredible candidates, House Democrats gained several seats in the Heartland. Our new Democratic Majority will relentlessly focus on improving the lives of hardworking families across our nation.
