LAS VEGAS, Nev. I dont have the background of a typical politician, right? Lucy Flores told a crowd of Democratic activists as she accepted the partys nomination for lieutenant governor of Nevada in June.
Its a line youve heard before: Candidates love to brag about how they didnt grow up like those typical politicians. But theres no other way to describe Flores, a Latina rising star who was born into an impoverished family of 13 children, whose mother abandoned her in grade school, who fell in with a gang, who was sentenced to a youth prison, who dropped out of high school and who became a lawyer and a state legislator all by age 31.
Flores, now 34, isnt running from her troubled past; shes running on it. Her early struggles and the way shes overcome them are the centerpiece of her campaign.
There are Lucys in every town across this state, she told activists. Thats why my focus is on making sure that this is a state that works for every Nevadan, not just the privileged few.
Flores isnt the only one betting big on her life story either. Nevada Democrats are looking to her underdog tale to lead their entire party in a challenging year....

Dont miss an opportunity to ask Lucy Flores your questions. Get started!
No thanks. I’ll stick with rooting for Mrs. Palin.
Went from a gang to being a part of Dingy Harry’s crew. Once a criminal, always a criminal.
What I know is Hutchinson is Nevada GOPe. I am just sick of those slugs. But Flores is Reid’s plant.
Ye gads...you might be right.
Her story is: I killed my child like Casey Anthony and I have no regrets.
Ladies & Gentlemen: say hello to abortion barbie 2.0
I wish her as much success as the plastic mess that was her predecessor, who became Texas’ version of Chucky.
Nevadan Democrats recently chose ‘none of the above’ over both major candidates for governor. The only thing that makes the state party look vaguely good is how terrible the Nevadan Repuke Party is.
Aye meho. No way es ay. Of course that would raise charges of racism against someone of Spanish decent. Kinda like a european ain’t it? Or does speaking Spanish establish a “race”.
She was a gangbanger too! How many people has she killed (besides the little one she mercilessly sentenced to death?)
“She” looks like a dude. Just sayin
All we need... loose foot whores who hate real firm women in power.
Looks like Miss Flores been to prison and had an abortion so she’s a perfect candidate for them.
And these same lefties sneer at Sarah Palin!
Why do we let them determine who’s electable for us????!!#
It’s not the personality that is the problem it is the policies that DON’T WORK (aka progressivism) and that ruin lives that is the problem!
Woof, you could kick a field goal with that head. And she’s bragged about her abortion? Is that what makes her a “star”? Disgusting.
I’m hoping the NV GOP is able to do very well in the statewide races, won nothing but Gov and LT Gov last time. This time the rats are not contesting the Governorship. Zero chance of taking either House of the legislature, the most winnable (only?) winnable rat seat in the tiny State Senate is not up this year.
A gang-banger, criminal who bragged about her abortion is the Dem choice?
Is Nevada so far gone??
Only if she wins, that the rats are promoting such a disgusting person is hardly a surprise.
We had one running here last year that was an avowed commie and her hubby was a gangbanger. She almost won.
Thought she was going to be attractive. She looks like a tranny.
