Tim Ryan becomes latest COVID-19 breakthrough case in Congress MORE (D-Kan.) were featured in a “Jeopardy” clue Wednesday night for making history as the first Native American congresswomen.
The game show category was “U.S. representatives” and the clue was “Deb Haaland of the Laguna Pueblo and Sharice Davids of the Ho-Chunk Nation are the first women of this group in Congress.”
Contestant Laura Thomason gave the correct answer: Native American.
“@ShariceDavids and I may have been the first, but we won’t be the last!” Haaland tweeted after the episode aired. “More Native Women are choosing to run for office at every level. Sharice and I both see them and we are here to support them every step of the way! #BeFierce.”
