A Conservative College Student Who Lives With Her Parents Pulled Off a Shocking Election Upset
From her parents' house to the Florida House of Representatives...
Meet Jennifer Sullivan, a conservative Republican who just might be the most unlikely election winner you're going to hear about this year.
Sullivan is 23. She's still in college and she lives with her parents. She ran against much older opponents boasting a lot more money and more influential endorsements.
And she still won the Aug. 26 election by six points and will now serve a two-year term representing an area of about 150,000 constituents.
The Orlando Sentinel reported that Sullivan was viewed as the most conservative candidate of the five who were running. She was home-schooled and is the daughter of the founder of a local Tea Party organization in North Lake, Florida.
She's also the youngest woman ever elected to the Florida Legislature.
Sullivan talked to Brian Kilmeade this morning to discuss how she was able to pull this off. Her campaign's main plan was to "connect with voters," knocking on doors and just trying to focus on listening to voters' concerns.
Sullivan also hopes to inspire other millennials to also get involved in politics.
"I may only be 23, but I still pay taxes. I still have a job. The economy affects us. This administration is affecting my future and I can't sit back and idly allow it to fall apart. I want to be part of the solution," she said.
