“One shoe can change your life. Just ask Cinderella,” Sears said, tapping her black heel on the runway.

In January, Sears was sworn in as lieutenant governor and made history as the first black woman to serve in Virginia, the commonwealth that once held the Confederate capital.

Sears was born in Jamaica and advocated the Second Amendment and opposed so-called “critical race theory”.

She is a Marine Corps veteran and former director of a homeless shelter.

She and new Virginia Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin were able to take advantage of political trends in the November after-hours election.

Before Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe won his race in 2013, Virginia spent 36 years electing a governor who was in opposition to the White House occupier.

McAuliffe, the 2021 Democratic gubernatorial nominee, looked to break the trend again but lost to Youngkin and Sears by 2 points.

In Virginia, governors are prohibited from running for re-election after one term, but after that they can run again, as McAuliffe did.

He tried to keep the blueness of the governor’s mansion after Democratic governor Ralph Northam’s controversial presidency.

Sears, like Vice President Kamala Harris, presides over the State Senate and, like Harris, can cast the deciding vote.

The Virginia State Senate has 40 members, and the Democrats have a narrow majority of 21 votes to 19.

Last week, Sears cast her first decisive vote for a bill that would allow a criminal defendant to appeal a judge’s verdict.

Sears voted no on this issue.
