    Iowa has joined West Virginia by also electing its first female Senator, Joni Ernst (R).

    Factoring in West Virigia's election, now 26 states have elected a female Senator, and 36 female Senators have now been elected in U.S. history (22 Dems; 14 Reps).

    There was also another big milestone for women as a special election in North Carolina will tip the number of women serving in the current Congress into triple digits.
