This story has been updated to include Antonio Delgado, a former Akin Gump attorney who won a House seat in New York.

Among the candidates who claimed victory in the hotly contested midterm elections Tuesday are a number of attorneys who have backgrounds in the world of Big Law.

They include Democrat Colin Allred, who sailed to victory over GOP incumbent Pete Sessions in Texas’s 32nd congressional district; Lizzie Pannill Fletcher, who beat Republican John Culberson in Texas’s 7th district; Mary Gay Scanlon, who defeated Republican candidate Pearl Kim in Pennsylvania’s 5th district; Rebecca “Mikie” Sherrill, who defeated Republican candidate Jay Webber in New Jersey’s 11th district; Gretchen Whitmer, who will be the next governor of Michigan, having defeated Republican nominee Bill Schuette, the state’s attorney general; and Antonio Delgado, who ousted Rep. John Faso in New York’s 19th district seat– one of three defeats of Republican incumbents by first-time Democratic office-seekers in New York.
