Mia Love on Her Election

In an era in which candidates campaign on identity politics and elites impose collective guilt, it is refreshing to hear from Congresswoman-elect Mia Love (R-UT 4th).  The day after her election, Ms. Love made the media rounds.   On CNN, Michaela Pereira asked Mia Love a loaded question as to why it took Republicans so long to elect a black woman.

Mia Love's answer echoed the wisdom of Martin Luther King, seeking to be judged by the content of her character, not the color of her skin.
