In yesterday’s edition, Davids, one of two first American Indian women in Congress gains praise as being “methodical… nailing all the fundamentals” in her approach to as a freshmen member of the Congress.
“Congress has never seen anyone quite like Davids: Cornell Law School-educated MMA fighter, one of the first two Native American women in the House, the first LGBT person to represent Kansas.” writes The Kansas Star in the article.
Davids represents Kansas’ 3rd Congressional District in the 116th Congress.

“I think that it’s a mistake to assume that because you’re taking a position from somebody else who you might disagree with—or you know you disagree with on some things—to assume that you disagree with on everything and to not look at each policy on its own merits,” Davids said in the article.
“When I talk to folks I’ve asked them… when you had the chance to talk to my predecessor what were the things that were helpful and what were the things that you would like to see different and asking those questions I think gets to core of why somebody should be sent to D.C.”
