A nod to 49.556 percent of us

At the Fairmont for Nancy Pelosi’s DCCC Ultimate Women’s Power Luncheon on Monday, Sept. 24, 800 women and a few men were — against the backdrop of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, as well as ongoing fights about a woman’s right to choose, health care, #MeToo revelations and the simple fact that only 19 percent of the members of the House are women — ready to roar. Emcee Renel Brooks-Moon, true blue to the Dems as she is to the Giants, began by quoting Oprah Winfrey (“A new day is on the horizon!”); that welcome was followed by eight one-minute pitch speeches by candidates from around the country. The mood was perhaps best expressed by Angie Craig, running for a seat in Minnesota.
