Senator McConnell might not have realized it when he used these words to silence U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren last night, but “nevertheless, #shepersisted” is something strong, brave women across this country—and around the world—should be proud to hear. I don’t know if the Republican Leader thought about where our country would be if women throughout our history hadn’t persisted, but I do know that I wouldn’t be here today if I’d given up. Thank you, Senator Warren, for persisting and making your voice heard. We can’t give up, and we can’t let our voices be silenced.

#ShePersisted, after Republicans stopped her from reading aloud a 1986 letter from one of the titans of the struggle for race equality, the late Coretta Scott King, widow of Martin Luther King, Jr..
Americans deserve an attorney general that is on their side. Elizabeth Warren understands that. “I didn’t hurl any ugly names. I didn’t throw any invectives his way. I simply stated what I believe to be the facts and I quoted Coretta Scott King, who saw firsthand what it meant to have Jeff Sessions in a position power and what it meant for African-Americans who were trying to vote.”
Analysis from Doug Perry: “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
