Sinema named among ten Congress freshmen to watch

The elections are all finally over and Congress is getting prepared to see out former members and welcome new ones.

While Americans are eager to see what the new Congress looks like, NBC News named 10 freshmen representatives who are worth watching, one of which is Kyrsten Sinema from Arizona.

The 36-year-old social worker, who once quipped that she's a "Prada socialist" in a magazine interview, jousted with Gov. Jan Brewer on education issues during her tenure in the legislature, warranting a hefty contribution from the governor's political action committee to Sinema's opponents. Education policy, jobs, and addressing foreclosures will be her top priorities as a federal lawmaker.

Several freshman representatives are setting records, including Sinema. She is the first openly bisexual person to serve in Congress.
