Big news from last night’s primaries, guys:

More from The Hill:
Sharice Davids, an attorney and former professional mixed martial arts fighter, declared victory Wednesday in the Democratic primary in Kansas’s 3rd District over a candidate backed by both Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and up-and-coming star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Sanders and his allied group, Our Revolution, have had mixed results in Democratic primaries. In House races, only two of five Democrats he’s endorsed have won their contests, though he’s had a better record in gubernatorial primaries, where his preferred candidates easily won in both Georgia and Maryland.
OK, the part about the combined powers of Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez failing to deliver is pretty funny, but here’s what’s really getting people’s attention:
Still, Davids, who’s openly gay, remains a fairly progressive candidate and the latest high-profile female candidate running this year. If she wins in November, she would be the first Native American woman elected to Congress.
But … but …
How is this possible?
