Ohio Rep. Kaptur becomes longest-serving woman in US House

WASHINGTON — Ohio Rep. Marcy Kaptur has become the longest-serving female member in the U.S. House.

The 71-year-old Democrat from Toledo has served in the House since 1983.

The longest-serving woman in the House so far was Rep. Edith Nourse Rogers, a Massachusetts Republican who served from 1925 until she died in 1960. Kaptur surpassed that tenure of over 35 years on Sunday.

Thank you to the people of Ohio's 9th District. And thank you to my colleagues and everyone who made this honor so...
