"I'm particularly proud to be the first Italian American Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. One of my strongest supporters, both in promoting Italian Americans to leadership positions and electing Italian American Democrats to Congress, has always been the Italian American Democratic Leadership Council."

-- Leader

Obviously, November 8 was not a good day for us.  

But Italian Americans did make some progress.

In addition to re-electing US Senator Pat Leahy of Vermont, we helped elect two new Italian Americans to the US House.

Senator Pat Leahy 
Won with 61%
    Tom Suozzi for Congress
New York’s 3rd District
Won with 52%
    Darren Soto for Congress
Florida’s 9th District
Won with 57%

And in Pennsylvania, we helped win two statewide races.

As Hillary said, the fight for our values is not over.
