They Like 'Em Young in West Virginia

18-Year-Old Freshman Elected To W.Va. House Of Delegates, Becomes Youngest State Lawmaker In US
Eighteen-year-old Saira Blair will become the youngest state lawmaker in West Virginia history. The Republican defeated Democrat Layne Diehl on Tuesday to win a seat in the state House of Delegates to become the youngest state lawmaker in the U.S..
. . .
Blair’s birthday was in July, so she barely met the 18-year-old minimum age for West Virginia House delegates.

Blair is a freshman attending West Virginia University. She plans to skip spring classes so she can serve as a lawmaker. The Legislature meets for 60 days from January to March.
She'll just be taking general ed anyway. She probably know American History better than the professor.
In a May primary, the Martinsburg teen defeated incumbent Republican Del. Larry Kump, who is almost four times her age.

Blair is pro-life, pro-gun rights and pro-business. Her father, Craig Blair, is a sitting Republican state senator from the Eastern Panhandle.
 Republican War on WomenTM!

You go girl! Show 'em how it's done.
