Lucy McBath is heading to the office.
On Wednesday, McBath claimed the seat of Republican Karen Handel as representative of Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District.
The two women locked into a recount early Wednesday morning, but, McBath still conquered the battle.
Claiming her victory, she wrote on Twitter, “This win is just the beginning. We’ve sent a strong message to the entire country. Absolutely nothing – no politician & no special interest – is more powerful than a mother on a mission.”
McBath is known as a mother who lost her son during a hate crime in Florida.
In 2012, McBath’s son Jordan Davis was with his friends at a gas station the day after Thanksgiving.
A man by the Micahel Dunn became angry because the 17-year-old and his friends were playing loud music inside of their vehicle.
