WASHINGTON — For congressional Republicans, this month’s elections ushered in the year of the woman — literally. West Virginia’s Carol Miller will be the only Republican woman entering the 435-member House as a newcomer in January. She’ll join what may be the chamber’s smallest group of female GOP lawmakers since the early 1990s — as few as 13 of at least 199 Republicans. Democrats will have at least 89. By Alan Fram. SENT: 918 words, photo. (Includes mention of Rep. Liz Cheney).
