(MEDIAITE) Mia Love, who last night became the first female African American Republican elected to Congress, disputed what she felt was the implication from CNN hosts Michaela Pereira and John Berman that race and gender factored into her election.
“This has nothing do with race,” Love said. “Understand that Utahans have made a statement that they’re not interested in dividing Americans based on race or gender, that they want to make sure that they are electing people who are honest and who have integrity. …That’s really what made history here. Race, gender, had nothing to do with it.”
