SENATOR KAMALA HARRIS

Feeling Rebloggy 

     From Ms. Magazine 
Thanks to a 2010 California law that advances the top two primary candidates, regardless of party, to the general election, we’ve known since June that not just a Democrat—but a feminist woman Democrat—would be replacing Sen. Barbara Boxer, who is stepping down in January after years of spectacular feminist leadership in Congress. 
With her victory over Rep. Loretta Sanchez, Kamala Harris, the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India, becomes the first black and South Asian woman ever elected to the U.S. Senate.

On election night, Harris was set to begin. “We know the stakes are high,” she told a crowd in Los Angeles. “When we have been attacked and when our ideals and fundamental ideals are being attacked, do we retreat or do we fight? I say we fight!”
