Susana Martinez and Nikki Haley are Historic Firsts

Following up on the Nikki Haley post, Susana Martinez will most likely become the first Hispanic woman ever elected governor in the U.S. She already is the first Hispanic woman ever nominated for Governor by a major party. What do you think: "If Nikki Haley and Susana Martinez were Democrats do you think their "historic" races would have been promoted in the MSM?"

I'm not into the quotas and "firsts" but we need to get past race in this country and one of the best ways to do that is to break the perception that Republicans are racists. As long as that mentality exists Democratic opportunists can manipulate people and continue this myth by saying "see look how many Republicans there are -- this is a racist country."

Having Martinez, a woman with Mexican ancestry, elected as Governor of New Mexico, on the Republican line is a big deal; along with Nikki Haley, and Black Republican Representatives such as Allen West, Florida (a big favorite of mine), Bill Randall, North Carolina, and Ryan Frazier, Colorado, as elected officals will go a long way in changing the narrative.
