Rep. Gail McCann Beatty, a Democrat, represents the Kansas City metro area (District 26) in the Missouri House of Representatives and without much notice from the local media she has earned an EPIC achievement that must be noted.
Missouri State Rep. Gail McCann Beatty is the FIRST woman and FIRST African-American Missouri Democratic Party House Minority Leader.
An insider tells us:
"This is a big deal for the Missouri House. We've had female assistant leaders and other top ranking positions but never the top spot. It's an impressive move for her and for the party."
The news comes as the Missouri House Democratic Caucus is set to converge on Westport tonight and AG & current Gov. candidate is slated to pay them a visit.
Furthermore, this bit of progress comes as Missouri Democratic Party officials are hoping to make up ground down ballot now that Trump is polling so poorly in what was formerly claimed as "Red State" Missouri.
