Winsome Sears Wins In Virginia As Republicans Flip the State

Winsome Sears Wins In Virginia As Republicans Flip the State
Winsome Sears Wins In Virginia As Republicans Flip the State

CHANTILLY, VA-(Ammoland.com)- Virginia elected the first woman of color to the Lt. Governor position in the Commonwealth. And she is pro-gun and pro-liberty.

Winsome Sears caused a stir earlier in the campaign cycle when she posed for her campaign picture with her personal AR-15. Her opponent, Hala Ayala, and the Democrat party attacked her for the picture, but she leaned into it instead of backing away from her pro-gun stance. She refused to apologize for her no-compromise stance on gun rights.

Sears was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1964. When she was six years old, her father chose to emigrate to the United States with $1.75 in his pocket to chase his American dream. He took any odd job he could in the Bronx as he continued with his education with hopes of working his way out of poverty.

Her family instilled a sense of American pride in Sears, so much so that she joined the United States Marine Corps. She served as an electrician and diesel mechanic in the Corps. Her father’s emphasis on education was passed onto Sears. She obtained B.A. in English with a minor in economics from Old Dominion University, and a master’s in organizational leadership from Regent University.

After her service to the country was complete, she felt the need to continue giving back to her adopted country. She ran a homeless shelter where she helped people in their most dire time of need. This service wasn’t enough for Sears, and she wanted to continue to give back to her community and her state.

Lieutenant governor-elect Sears has a history of breaking down walls in elections. She was the first woman of Jamaican origin to win any state seat in Virginia. In 2002, she defeated incumbent Billy Robinson (D) to win the House of Delegate seat for the 90th District.

After she chose not to seek reelection, Sears served on the Virginia Board of Education. She would take a national position when then-President George W. Bush appointed her to the U.S. Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee on Women Veterans. She also served as the national chair of Black Americans to Re-elect the President in 2020.

After years of service, Sears opened a plumbing, electrical, and appliance repair business in Winchester, VA. But she was drawn back into the political world when she felt a calling to run for Lieutenant Governor. Virginia was a blue state, and it would take a herculean effort to win the office, but she was convinced she could turn Virginia red.

But Sears is a Marine, and Marines improvise. She turned out the vote by standing by her beliefs. That includes the right to bear arms. Instead of walking the line on guns, she let everyone know where she stood. Over and over again, she would tell reporters that she was an “ardent supporter” of gun rights and opposed things like red flag laws.

With Sears as the Lt. Governor, Youngkin as Governor (I was promised in his campaign office that he would be the most pro-gun Governor in Virginia history, and I intend to keep him to it), Jason Miyares as Attorney General, and the House of Delegates in Republican control, we can start pushing for pro-gun bills in Virginia.

Next year, we take back the Virginia Senate!

The Marine, Ruben Gallego, knows about weapons of war – he fought for our freedom in Iraq: https://rubengallego.house.gov/media-center/in-the-news/gallego-advocates-renew-calls-stricter-gun-control-measures Semper Fi!!!!! How do we get more of these Marines into government? How do we grow the military (maybe another $5 trillion or so) so we have more Marines to get involved in foreign adventures? Then, they can come back and fight for our freedom in the sacred halls of democracy. All we have to do is tax civilians more and then we can have more Marines who will tell the civilians what kind of firearms they can have. I mean, if… Read more »

Don’t forget the Marines who are now prison guards who are guarding all the violent paraders insurrectionists.

The Marine, Conor Lamb, is not only a Marine – he’s a lawyer!

Veterans who are lawyers are really smart and are on our side.

Conor loves to shoot! He just thinks we need a little more gun control and thought David Chipman was the right man to head the BATFE:

The Marine, Seth Moulton, is one of the heroes of the conflict in Iraq. As a Marine, he is an expert and understands guns kill people and that the government should protect the people from guns:

Geraldo Rivera on ‘The Five’ on Fox News actually said “why is she carrying a machine gun?”

However, even though that photo you chose to feature is controversial, she is unapologetic.

Just to prove for everyone here, here is the Fox Transcript: ============================================= PIRRO (on camera): While the media is calling voters racist, what they aren’t mentioning is Republican Winsome Sears winning in Virginia’s lieutenant governor’s race. The first woman of color to win that particular office in the state’s history. All right, Jesse, I’m going to start with you. OK. I just heard that quote from Niccole Wallace. I think the real ominous thing is that critical race theory, which isn’t real, turned the suburbs 15 points to Trump insurrection endorsed Republicans. What are they talking about?

To the author, obviously not a Marine: It’s Marine, not marine. And, it’s Corps, not corp. We are not a corporation.

Otherwise, a fine description of a fine American and her family is equally admirable; her husband als is a Marine and their two daughters reflect the qualities of their parents.

As expected, the communists are vilifying and excoriating Ms. Sears. Par for the course for patriotic minorities who choose to think, not follow the herd.

Is she a member of nra ,?
Has she given her permission for the nra to high jack her pic for its own shameless self promotion?

The nra has become a criminal organization, not at all unlike Jesse Jackson’s rainbow coalition.

The nra is so impotent it has to resort to attaching its self to unaffiliated successes like a blood sucking leech..

You guys should be ashamed.

But the nra has no shame.

NRA is doing jack S on elections. Over $100m in member money that should’ve gone to elections went to Pepe LaPew’s vampire atty, who – per testimony – LaPew claims is the only thing keeping him out of jail.

OTOH, bite me.

Who is an “NRA groupie”?
I did notice that the author made no mention of Sears being an NRA member, hence my response of: “Who said the article had anything to do with the NRA?” Do you know for a fact that the NRA logo was added for this article? I’m sure that the picture has been out without the NRA logo. The question is whether or not it had the NRA the logo on it when this author/website acquired it.

Her Facebook page, and daily beast ,new york post, UK DAILY, for just a few , all have the original pic.

No filthy nra logo, and the original has a different background, like she is at a range maybe.

But the filthy nra definitely hijacked her pic.

No, it was not the first comment on the article. If it was a response to what actually was the first comment about the article, or any other comment for that matter, why didn’t he click on the “reply” link below that comment so that it would be obvious and his comment would… possibly… make more sense.
