Mia Love made history, First Haitian-American, First Black Republican woman

There you have it folks. History has been made. The Haitian American candidate just won a seat in US Congress

She beat Democrat Doug Owens by taking 50 percent of the vote, with Mr. Owens's 47 percent.

Mia Love who is 38 years old is the first Haitian-American to win congressional office. She is the baughter of Haitian immigrants. She was the mayor of Saratoga Springs

Recently, Haiti has celebrated a lot of firsts in American politics throughout many states including Florida, New York and D.C., but one woman would have not one, but two firsts. Mia Love, not only the first Haitian-American to win the House seat in Utah, is also the first Black Republican woman to do so. She won over her Democratic rival, Dough Owens, to take the congressional seat with 50% of the precincts. Her victory was welcomed after the loss in 2012 for the same seat.

Kreyol Pale, Kreyol Kompran!

Mezanmi, moun lakay ape pote fyerte nou ho Ozetazini. Eske nou tande ke ginyin yon ti Ayisyenn-Amerikain ki prale nan kongres Amerikin. Sa se yon gro koze. Li demontre ke nou se yon group moun ki ape pren pouvwa nan gro payi sa yo bay pou Etazini-an.

Mape pran tout plezi mwin pou mwin felicite Mia Love pou gro bagay sa li realize jodia. Se pa pou rou selman ou fè sa se pou tout Kominote Ayisyen-an

Gro Mesi Mia Love
