Virginia’s Lt. Governor-Elect Winsome Sears became a conservative rock star overnight when she and Glenn Youngkin won their election in November.
During a recent interview, she talked about the way to bring more black voters into the Republican party.
She used herself as a model, which is totally fair. She has earned her position on this.
Virginia Lt. Gov.-Elect Sears: ‘I Look Like the Strategy’ to Attract Black GOP Voters
Winsome Sears, Virginia’s incoming lieutenant governor, says she looks “like the strategy” behind getting Black voters to become Republicans, and insists that if Democrats want to talk about race, then “let’s talk about it.”
“The only way to change things is to win elections,” Sears, who in November became Virginia’s first Black woman elected to statewide office, told The New York Times for an interview published Monday. “And who better to help make that change but me? I look like the strategy.”
Sears first appeared on the political scene 20 years ago, when she won a legislative seat in an upset election but disappeared from politics after serving just one term except for in 2018 when she announced a write-in protest against the then-GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate…
Sears, a strong conservative and an immigrant from Jamaica, is also a strong backer of former President Donald Trump and told The Times during an interview with her transition team that the “message is important, but the messenger is equally important.”
Sears is an amazing woman and she is going to make a great lt. governor for Virginia.
