Authored for Western Journalism. Speaking at CPAC last week, congressional candidate Erika Harold, a former Miss America winner, advanced the idea that those seeking to join the political arena should not need
to ask permission to get involved, relaying her own experience:
Some within the political establishment told me, it’s
not your turn. And the political establishment sought to drive me from
my involvement. But I refused to step aside because our country is built
on the leadership of men and women who decided not to wait their turn
and who decided to speak truth to power, even when that power was within
their own party.
