Remember when we brought you the story about San Antonio’s new Mayor Ivy Taylor? I’ve yet to see her celebrated in many news outlets, especially black media outlets.
Written By Allen B. West:
But that’s consistent with the disrespect levied against black conservatives who swim against the tide in opposition to the expectations of the liberal left. Senator Tim Scott — y’all know about the denigrating statements made about him. Rep. Mia Love of Utah, the first black female member of Congress — any major profiles of her and her achievements as a mayor? Or Rep. Will Hurd, Congressman from Texas — how much have we heard of his story?
Well, Tuesday in Kentucky history was made. First of all, the Bluegrass State elected only its second Republican governor in 40 years, Matt Bevin. And may I add that Governor-Elect Bevin spent four years active duty service in the U.S. Army as an Artillery officer — Go Redlegs!
But there was an even BIGGER story coming out of Kentucky Tuesday night. And it’s enough to make liberal heads everywhere explode.
As reported by National Review Online:
Matt Bevin’s 53 percent to 44 percent victory tonight marks only the second time in 48 years that Republicans have won the Kentucky governor’s race. But Republicans also made history in another way. Bevin’s lieutenant governor running-mate, Jenean Hampton, is now the first African American elected to statewide office ever in the state’s history.
Both Bevin and Hampton are Tea Party activists who have never held elective office. Hampton’s path certainly represents triumph over adversity. Born in Detroit, the 57-year-old Hampton and her three sisters were raised by a single mom who lacked a high school education and couldn’t afford a television or a car. But Hampton was determined to better herself. She graduated with a degree in industrial engineering and worked for five years in the automobile industry to pay off her college loans. She then joined the Air Force, retiring as a Captain. She earned an MBA from the University of Rochester, moved to Kentucky and became a plant manager in a corrugated packaging plant. Then she lost her job in 2012.
