A headline from Politico proudly proclaims that it was “a groundbreaking election night for Democrats” on Tuesday, but is that really the case?
Not according to WIBC host Tony Katz.
“In the Northeast, Democratic voters in two states made history: In Vermont, by nominating the nation’s first transgender candidate for governor, and in Connecticut by positioning the first African-American woman to represent the state in Congress. The first Somali-American will almost certainly be headed to Congress from the Minneapolis area, and another Muslim, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), will stand for statewide office this fall.”
So the takeaway here is that diversity equates to historic and ‘groundbreaking’ night?
