Mallory Hagan, Alyse Galvin, Dr. Stephanie Rose Spaulding, Stacy Abrams, Andria Tupola, Angie Craig, Peggy Flanagan, Ilhan Omar, Cindy Hyde-Smith, Amelia Marquez, Deb Haaland, Susan Wild, Pearl Kim, Hana Ali, Lupe Valdez, and Margaret Engebretson. These are just sixteen women out of 256 women who are qualified for tomorrow’s ballot. They say that 2018 is the year of the woman, but they’re wrong, it is the year of the WOMEN. The women I listed above are former Miss Americas, openly gays, transgender, Muslim, of color, republican, democratic, and each an every one of them is about to make history. Some have the potential to become their state’s first female senator, first openly gay senator or they’re about to balance out or set off their state’s women: man ratio in their state. This year, women are proving the impossible is possible. For so long, this conundrum has been lead by men, but now is the time for women. Now is the time to show our diversity. We may be very different in our race, religion, sexuality, political standpoint, etc. but every day we see more and more people coming out about their stories. We have seen people share their coming out stories and how they will use their diversity to advocate for the people in our very own government. For so long, we have been hiding our differences, but now is the time that is better than ever to show everyone how you’re different. Embrace your differences. MOST importantly share your political views TOMORROW on the ballot by voting. I may not have a say, but YOU do, so USE IT! Get out and vote! I want to finish off with one more point, whether you’re gay, straight, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, we are all more alike than ever. Let’s all come together and truly be the UNITED States of America. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Women from across the country are running tomorrow. Now is a time to make history. Whether you're republican or democratic, get out and vote!
