43. Maria Cantwell


Office: Senator from Washington
Party: Democrat
Why You Should Vote For Her: She famously faced off against powerful Alaska Senator Ted Stevens over drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He's this old dude who's like “I'm gonna drill there,” and she's this gutsy hottie who's like “no you ain't, mister” and then kicks him in the balls. Well, that's not exactly how it happened.
