Former Miss America Erika Harold Describes Her History-Making Republican Run for Congress
Indepent Journal ^ | 2/12/14 | Emily Hulsey

Posted on 02/12/2014 10:19:51 AM PST by Impala64ssa

Erika Harold, who was crowned Miss America in 2003, announced last summer that she would be running for the Republican nomination for Illinois’s thirteenth Congressional district. As Miss America, she spent her reign promoting her messages of bullying prevention and abstinence. If elected, she would become the first female African-American Republican in Congress.

Video at link. Hmmm, Black, republican, female, attractive, believes in abstinence, sounds like an intelligent, sensible young lady. yup the libs will try to rip her apart, even more mercilessly than they did to Herman Cain and Alan West.

Black, republican, female, attractive . . . . "

Sounds like the Libs have a new female Republican to unleash their racist, sexist, anti-conservative hate upon.

Yup, the Libs are very territorial about keeping their Plantation secure.

Hope Erika develops a thick skin quickly!

Maybe there is hope for “The Party of Lincoln” after all - - - .

Black or not. Doubt she cares. I’d love to meet her parents and tell them what a wonderful person they raised.

Oui, one suspects a coordinated and continuous "incoming" salvos from the Dem attack machine.

I'm guessing that Ms. Harold's inner strength and senses of self respect and duty to Country will override the viciousness likely headed her way.

Erika. Good on ya!

If Katrina Pierson (Ted Cruz endorsed) beats Pete Sessions in TX-32 (along with Harold & Love), there will be three Black GOP women in Congress.

Yup.

Many complain , but few volunteer to rescue America from the Democrat Evil Empire Plantation, located in the District of Corruption on the Muddy banks of De Nile River.

Democrats are all in favor of black progress, but only in highly controlled doses by the plantation bosses, so they don’t get too uppity.

“If Mia Love wins her race there will be two black Republican women in Congress.”

As of today, no RAT has filed for that district. My guess is that the RAT Party knows that there’s no chance to win it so they are not going to bankroll a looser. Mia will win! The only bothersome thing is that she’s using Urine Hatch’s campaign organization.

You know, the one who lives in THE BIG HOUSE at 1600 Plantation Avenue?

This is soooooo confusing!

That would be grand. I think we need to let the country know there are three black Republican women running for Congress this year. We each need to do what we can to get the word out.

Katrina Pierson is definitely easy on the eyes.

But fill me in here...

Has Pete Sessions been selling out the GOP lately - or is Pierson’s campaign more the case of her trying to get name ID for some future race or business venture?

If she gets the nomination. The Republican incumbant will be taking a crack at her first. The Democrats will rip up anything that's left, assuming she wins.

And there’s nothing Dems fear more. Blacks have more in common with the average FReeper, than the average Democrat. Show them how you’ll improve their lives and black voters will come round to the Party of Lincoln.

Unfortunately, it seems Sessions has gone native (not to be confused with the Senator from Alabama, who hasn’t). She looks serious, although her fundraising numbers are subpar (going by OpenSecrets). She needs to get going with that.

You’re right about that. Laz is usually (no pun intended) on top of these posts.
