I am so thrilled that NOW/PAC has chosen strong feminist friends for its first endorsements for the 2014 cycle. With women's rights so viciously attacked by the right wing in the House and Senate, there would be no stronger allies in Congress than Alma Adams, running for the open NC-12 seat, Charniele Herring, running for the open VA-8 seat and Colleen Hanabusa running for the Hawaii Senate seat held by the late Senator Daniel Inouye. These three women are pioneers in their own right. Alma Adams started her career as the first African-American woman elected to the Greensboro City School Board. Charniele Herring was the first African-American woman ever elected from Northern Virginia as a delegate to the Virginia General Assembly. And Colleen Hanabusa was the first woman to serve as Hawaii Senate President and the first Asian-American woman in the nation to preside over a state legislative body.
