The Amazing “Wave of Women” In The 2018 Midterm Election

Tamera Mowry-Housley: I got excited when I looked at my ballot, because I did my homework. When I looked at my ballot and I saw all of these amazing women who were qualified – I did a little shimmy-shimmy-shimmy when I would vote for them. And also, you saw a lot of firsts, as we talked about right now. I saw that an 80-year-old woman had actually voted for the first time ever, you guys!

[The Real audience applauds] Tamera: And! She had her little, her little oxygen tank – it was really cute. There were some people who broke a leg, and they were like, “Uh-uh, I’m gonna go, with my crutches…”

Adrienne Houghton: That’s right

Tamera: “And I’m gonna vote as well.” So that was nice to see.

Loni Love: I also want to shout-out Stacy Abrams…

[The Real audience applauds]

Loni: …who’s running for governor of Atlanta… of Georgia… she’s not giving up, she’s still waiting on all the votes to come in, so we’ll see what’s gonna happen with that.

Adrienne: We’re watching minute-by-minute, there’s so much going on – also with the Florida governor, like we’re just watching… and I think it does prove – I saw a lot of people in my Instagram that were saying, “I didn’t vote because my vote doesn’t count.” And I was literally on there – I had a time last night, ok, I was arguing with people, like “No, it actually does,” and I think things like this, even right now, watching, vote-by-vote, and how close it is at the polls…

Tamera: Yes!

Adrienne: …proves that every single vote counts!

Tamera: Matters!

[The Real audience applauds]

Jeannie Mai: Absolutely.

Adrienne: Every single one! Like, if you’re watching this and you’re watching them tally it up live on television – even again, watching what happened with Ocasio, because for me that proves that – she won because the people voted for her. You guys, she was a bartender!

[The Real audience applauds]

Tamera: Wow.

Adrienne: Like, that was not long ago! That – that’s proof that it does count!

Loni: That’s hard.

Jeannie: Actually, I got so emotional watching how people reacted and got excited about voting and it just proved to me that we as a country, we are the United States, we have to be united, even in our differences, to just make our country better, that’s the whole point!

[The Real audience applauds]

Tamera: Yes Jeannie!

Loni: That’s the whole point, that’s it!

Jeannie: What I love is, after the people had spoken, what we really saw, what we really wanted y’all, was more females, minorities and members of the LGBTQ community representing us.
