    Meet Mia Love. You’ll be seeing a lot more of the Republicans’ first black [W:110]

    For at least half a century, the party of Lincoln has battled charges that it is racist, sexist and anti-immigrant.

    Today, voters from a conservative state made those arguments a little bit harder to make. In Utah, Mia Love became the first black Republican woman — and first Haitian American — elected to Congress.

    For the GOP — a house divided that faces significant demographic hurdles to winning the White House in 2016 even as it celebrates President Obama’s shellacking — this was huge. A party threatened with electoral extinction among African Americans and immigrants now has someone to brag about in Washington. In a wave election less about fresh Republican ideas than fervid disapproval of all things presidential, Love’s compelling personal story is an oasis. She’s not just a black face in what’s often described as a party full of angry old white men. She’s a path forward.

    Good for her. I've followed her for a while now. The daughter of Haitian immigrants.

    So much for all Republicans being racist and sexist.

    Wasn't that cool? I saw the beautiful look on her face when it was a sure deal. I loved it!

    I am hoping that we will eventually be able to destroy the image that Republicans hate minorities and women. Those are two of the biggest lies of my lifetime, and it just pisses me off that dems have been able to use those lies for their own gains for decades.

    It was awesome. She is such a classy lady and it made me smile from ear to ear at about 3 am when I found out about it (Mr. B & I were at the Scott Brown party and had to catch up when we got home). She's someone to watch in the future!

    It is good to see, the Republican party is in need of some new blood.

    No, they'll use it for all its worth, and keep beating that drum until there isn't an audience any longer. It's going to be a long time coming.

    I have long ago tired of those remarks; even when joking.. ( yes, I'm as guilty of the occasional crappy sarcasm ) ..

    Have a great day L

    I think Mia Love's victory coming from a very red state is profound. I also see the re-election of Senator Scott (R) of South Carolina, one of only two black senators currently serving also very profound. I see all the wins of GOP women this election to put to bed this mythical war on women. And I also think it should be noted those white women candidates in the South that played the race card this election all lost. It didn't help Nunn in GA. It didn't help Hagan in N.C.. It didn't help Mary Landrieu in LA.

    Oh , not another black community organizer....

    She became a neighborhood activist in Saratoga Springs, Utah, leading the charge to get a developer to spray the area for flies
    Sorry, couldn't resist. But it is nice to see someone other than a 80 year old male winning the election.
