Elizabeth Warren: The Harvard Law professor who drove out Republican Scott Brown in the Massachusetts Senate race after slamming him for voting against equal pay for equal work.

Tammy Baldwin: The Wisconsin senator and longtime congresswoman who is the first openly gay person in the senate.

Mazie Hirono: The Japan-born representative who is Hawaii’s first female Senator.

Those reelected include Maria Cantwell (Wash), Dianne Feinstein (Calif), Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Amy Klobuchar (Minn), and Debbie Stabenow (Mich).
