Katie Hill (CA-25) is the real star of the 2018 class

Katie Hill: can 'America's most millennial candidate' win?
The grassroots Hill has never held office, but her youth-oriented campaign typifies a new kind of poster child for the Democrats

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/oct/22/millennial-candidate-midterms-katie-hill-25th-district

She won against a GOP incumbent - unlike some of her cohorts who had easy wins.

9. I bet most all of us love her for helping

the Democratic party to achieve The BlueWave in 2018.

We wouldn't have a Democratic Victory in the House now without all kinds of Dems across the Country.

But, you have to label her a "centrist".. divisive much?

41. No it isn't. I think it was worded perfectly, and it's being proven day after day.

Thankfully most of the 40 new members of Congress that we elected in November are quietly going about doing the work that they were elected to do.

Of course to some a centrist is anyone even slightly to the right of Bernie or AOC , so itís essentially been made meaningless by those who have the most contempt for centrists. By the way, we need centrist voters to win elections. Thatís a harsh reality for you, I know.

16. Centrist won us the House.

The freshmen favorites on DU were mainly from safe Democratic districts.

We only won the house because we won centrist districts with centrist candidates. It was our path to victory in 18. And our best path in 2020.

America by belief is a center left nation.

I'm grateful for all our Dems.

We need all of the variations to win. And not just to win, but because itís good for our party and for our country to include all reasonable Democratic ideas in our debates, in order to move forward and benefit the country.

40. "Centrists", as many like to put it, are responsible for the "Blue Wave" of November 2018....

....Look at all the new members of Congress. On what do you base the statement "progressives are the future"?

I don't understand why people continually like to beat on the majority of the Democratic Party.

4. She's a comer. She's in the district next to mine. She beat an incumbent in a swing district.

She was an advocate for the homeless and lives on a farm where they foster rescue animals.

6. Vice News covered her campaign weekly.

 

She won a tough primary and then worked her ass off door to door in 25.

It was retail politics at its BEST.

Katie Hill will be California Senator by 2026.

Beating a Republican makes you the real deal.

21. Katie Hill contacted me more than Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson combined

I'm in Miami and never heard from Gillum or Nelson by phone or email or door to door or anything. That's how sad our coordination and effort is in Florida.

But somehow Katie Hill got hold of my particulars and put me on the email list. I heard from her every day and often more than once per day. Consequently I was familiar with her long before she ever got elected and have enjoyed watching her during questioning.

Star indeed

22. She has been unbelievable in these two short months. She started by reaching out...

...to Ayanna Pressley by offering her an earlier lottery number so that Pressley could get the office occupied by her childhood hero, Shirley Chisolm.

She is one impressive woman and "freshman", she'll go far.
