Diversity in action: Straight white men are a minority among House Democrats

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
The DCCC estimates there will be 200 members in the Democratic caucus at the beginning of the 113th Congress, that number includes five Democratic candidates that are leading in races that are yet to be called as well as five non-voting delegates from territories such as the Virgin Islands and Guam. Among those 200 members, Pelosi said there will be 61 women, 43 blacks, 11 Asians/Pacific Islanders and six gay members, marking the first time straight white males will make up a minority of either party’s caucus.
Great moments of the Democrat party.
