Republican Michelle Steel has unseated the one-term Democratic incumbent from her Southern California U.S. House district, the Associated Press has reported. Steel now joins Marilyn Strickland from Washington State as the first-ever Korean American women elected to Congress.

Steel secured 51% of the vote in the 48th district, located in the once-reliably-Republican Orange County. Her opponent, Rep. Harley Rouda, was first elected the the House of Representatives during the 2018 midterms when the Democrats seized many suburban seats that used to vote more strongly Republican. Rouda ousted the 20-year GOP incumbent, Rep. Dana Rohrbacher.

It is worth noting that this win for Steel marks the second time in over two decades where a GOP candidate has defeated an incumbent Democrat in the Golden State, the AP reports.

This election cycle has already seen an unprecedented amount of GOP women elected to Congress, with this latest addition upping their numbers on Capitol Hill come January.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
