Saira Blair is in high school and she just won the Republican primary for the West Virginia House of Delegates.
“Soft-spoken and on-message, Blair is a churchgoer who says she is pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun rights and pro-business. She can rattle off a laundry list of businesses taxes she wants abolished or lowered.”
The Democrats will hate her too because if they attack Saira, she can accuse them of waging a “war on women.” Because of her age, she could accuse them of bullying.
There’s also a message here for all the pessimists. Not every Millennial teenager is a dunderheaded political nincompoop. All is not lost.
“Blair has attended GOP meetings with her dad since the sixth grade and volunteers with various groups. She skipped senior prom to participate in a Youth in Government meeting in Charleston.”
Some conservative Christians will turn their political nose up over Blair’s entry into politics. When men won’t get the job done, like the man she beat in the primary, then I have no objection. Blair is an indictment on the ineffectiveness of Republican male politicians. They are wimps. So be it if it takes a 17-year-old high school girl to point it out.
