Blue Wave! Congratulations!

Congratulations to all of the Democrats who won the election! You guys are amazing!

Thank you to all the volunteers who made those wins possible, thank you to the bakers of casseroles, the tech people, the canvassers, the callers, the post card writers, the organizers. You are the drops of water that make the Blue Wave possible!

To the Democrats with races too close to call, or go to run offs. Keep fighting! We stand with you! When you go to the mat again, we’ll be there right behind you.

To the Democrat women who demonstrated remarkable courage and dedication,  but lost. I see you. Senator Heitkamp your decision to stand with Dr. Blasey Ford was a moment of great political courage, and I (and others) appreciate it.

In particular from my state I want to congratulate new House Representatives Haaland and Small. Haaland is one of the first native women to be elected to Congress and I couldn’t be more proud that my district chose her to be our voice. I also want to congratulate Governor Elect Lujan Grisham. You were an excellent representative and you will be an amazing governor. Make us proud ladies!

Happy Indigenous Peoples Day!

There is a record number of Indigenous political candidates this year. Celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day by researching the candidates, and then voting for Indigenous women in the midterms!

Personally, the Pagan and the Pitbulls plan to vote for Deb Haaland. But if you don’t live in Deb’s district, please also check out Peggy Flanagan, Paulette Jordan, and Sharice Davids.
