Republican Winsome Sears Victory Speech “There are some who want to divide us and we must not let that happen”

During her Victory speech Republican Lt. Governor-elect of Virginia Winsome Spears declared “Education will lift us all out of poverty.”

“We’re going to have safer neighborhoods, safer communities, and our children are going to get a good education,” she added.

“There are some who want to divide us and we must not let that happen. They would like us to believe we are back in 1963 when my father came…In case you haven’t noticed, I am black, and I have been black all my life.”

Sears defeated Democrat Hala Ayala and made history as the first woman of color to hold the position of Lieutenant Governor.

Joseph Wulfsohn of Fox News wrote “Neither CNN nor MSNBC are airing Virginia’s Republican Lt. Governor-elect Winsome Sears’ victory speech.”

One Twitter user replied “A conservative black woman busts the whole narrative.”
