After winning the race for Washington's 10th Congressional District, Marilyn Strickland became the first Black member of Congress from the Pacific Northwest. Strickland, who was born in Seoul, South Korea, also became the first Korean-American woman to earn a spot in the legislative body. "Thank you — to the voters of the 10th district for helping us make history last night, and to our supporters who have been with us on this journey," Strickland said in a tweet on Nov.3. "I am humbled by these results, and I look forward to working for our communities everyday in Congress. Let's get to work!"
