Video: Mia Love’s Immediate Response When CNN Hosts Try to Make Race the Pivotal Focal Point of the Conservative’s Election Victory

The Left just can’t stand the fact that Utah elected a conservative, Republican, female, black candidate. They are beside themselves over it. They just don’t get that it had nothing to do with gender or race – it had everything to do with conservative, Constitutional principles, which is what Mia Love has always stood for. She’s also a fighter, having run before and she has the spine and courage of a true warrior. Love’s response to CNN made them turn 50 shades of pale.

From The Blaze:

Conservative candidate Mia Love made history on Tuesday by becoming the first black female Republican elected to Congress. While it’s a major milestone, Love hit back against suggestions that her election victory was the result of her race or gender during a Wednesday CNN appearance.

CNN host John Berman asked Love a seemingly back-handed question aimed at Republicans regarding why it took so long for the party to elect a black woman. Love was clear that her campaign and victory had “nothing to do with race.”

“This has nothing do with race. Understand that Utahans have made a statement that they’re not interested in dividing Americans based on race or gender, that they want to make sure that they are electing people who are honest and who have integrity,” Love said. “That’s really what made history here. It’s that Race, gender, had nothing to do with it, principles had everything to do with it.”

Berman’s co-host, Michaela Pereira, then challenged Love on her point, saying people shouldn’t be divided on the basis of race, but everyone should have a “fair shot at getting a seat at the table.”

Love explained that “there are very few black residents” in Saratoga Springs and reiterated that she “wasn’t elected because of the color of my skin, I wasn’t elected because of my gender.”

“I was elected because of the solutions that I put at the table because I promised I would run a positive issues-oriented campaign and that’s what resonated,” she added.

Mia Love is the real deal. Poised, eloquent and brilliant, she brings to the conservative table true leadership and morality. Attributes that most politicians in DC seemed to have lost long ago. What won Mia Love her race is honesty and her ‘putting it all on the table’ attitude. She may be beautiful, black, female, brilliant and gifted… but what got Mia Love elected was her conviction and determination. Of course, those are foreign concepts to the sycophants that haunt the hollow hallways of CNN and who pander to the likes of Barack Obama.
