Last night, Utah Representative Mia Love made history when she became the first black female GOP candidate to be elected to congress.
When Love appeared on CNN this morning, the liberal pundits of course wanted to make her win all about race, but Love wasn’t having any of it. Insulted by their race-baiting questions, Love gave the anchors a piece of her mind.
“This has nothing do with race,” Love said. “Understand that Utahans have made a statement that they’re not interested in dividing Americans based on race or gender, that they want to make sure that they are electing people who are honest and who have integrity. …That’s really what made history here. Race, gender, had nothing to do with it.”
The anchors, however, would not let up. They continued to try to get Love to talk about her race, but she stayed strong.
“In Saratoga Springs there are very few black residents,” Love replied. “I wasn’t elected because of the color of my skin, I wasn’t elected because of my gender. I was elected because of the solutions that I put at the table because I promised I would run a positive issues-oriented campaign and that’s what resonated.”
Bravo to Mia Love for ignoring the race-baiters and showing that race really shouldn’t matter at all.
