Virginia’s new Lt. Governor Winsome Sears is a force to be reckoned with and proved nothing will stand in her way to get her job done. All documented on Twitter, of course, Sears reportedly used her high-heeled patent leather pump as a gavel in the Virginia Senate.

Washington Post reporter Laura Vozzella first tweeted that “an unknown prankster” took the gavel and hid it. However, Sears “took the trick in stride.” The Lt. Gov took off her shiny shoe, stated, “one shoe can change your life…just ask Cinderella.”

The tweet included a photograph of the shoe, which Sears retweeted from her own account with the phrase “resourcefulness – never underestimate it!” Sears has been making waves and aggravating Democrats because she is the first Black female lieutenant governor of Virginia; and she is a Republican.

Sears also controls the narrow Democrat majority in the state Senate, meaning she is the tie-breaking vote if needed, which she quickly had to do almost upon taking office. On February 10, 2022 she tweeted:

“In my role as Lieutenant Governor, I preside over the Senate each day. While I am not a member of the Senate, I hold the tie-breaking vote in the event of a tie. Today, I had my first opportunity to do so on SB137.”

SB137 was related to discretionary sentencing guidelines, reports Fox News. Sears is a “critical player in the administration of the newly sworn-in Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin, who has taken measures related to COVID-29 and critical race theory in schools.”

As Fox News reports, the administration has taken the state, run previously by a Democratic administration, by storm. “On his first day in office, Youngkin singed 11 executive actions, including needing the use of critical race theory in schools, investigating officials’ alleged wrongdoing in Loudoun County and allowing parents to decide fi their children should wear masks in schools.”

Rock and Roll and Blues legend Eric Clapton took center stage at a recent campaign fundraiser, raising an impressive $2.2 million for Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Clapton’s electrifying performance at a private concert in Los Angeles underscored his support for Kennedy’s primary campaign against President Biden, making headlines across the nation.

The event, which featured Clapton’s iconic guitar prowess and took place against the backdrop of a prominent Kennedy 2024 banner, was a resounding success, according to a campaign press release. According to reports from Fox News, of the $2.2 million raised, $1 million directly benefited Kennedy’s campaign, while the remaining $1.2 million bolstered a political action committee supporting the Democrat’s bid for the presidency.

Attendees eager to support Kennedy’s campaign invested a cool $6,600 per ticket, as reported by the Daily Mail, to witness Clapton’s musical artistry and to lend their support to the candidate. Kennedy expressed his deep gratitude to Clapton for his role in the event, emphasizing the unifying power of music in today’s divided society.

“I am deeply grateful to Eric Clapton for bringing his musical artistry and rebellious spirit to my gathering in Los Angeles last night,” Kennedy remarked in the press release. He added, “I sometimes think that in our divided society, it is music rather than any kind of intellectual agreement that has the most potential to bring us together again. Eric sings from the depths of the human condition.”

Kennedy also credited artists like Clapton for invoking faith in the limitless power of human beings to overcome obstacles and unite the nation. The campaign event not only showcased Clapton’s performance but also included a private dinner attended by Kennedy, his wife Cheryl Hines, Stephen Stills of Crosby, Stills & Nash fame, and former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, I-Hawaii.

However, not everyone in attendance aligned with Kennedy’s presidential aspirations. Stephen Stills, who was initially present at the fundraiser, made it clear afterward that his support remained firmly behind President Biden. According to the Daily Beast, Stills issued a statement through a spokesperson, affirming his allegiance to the incumbent president.

“I support President Biden,” Stills declared. “I was there as a guest to support Eric Clapton, who performed.”

The event served as a notable intersection of music, politics, and fundraising, underlining the influential role that artists and musicians can play in shaping the political landscape and contributing to presidential campaigns.

With Kennedy’s campaign coffers significantly bolstered by Clapton’s performance, the 2024 presidential race continues to garner attention and financial support from a diverse array of donors and influencers.
