The Cherokee Nation-supported candidate Felton Newell failed miserably in the June 8 primary in CA-33rd Congressional District. 6.5% of the vote? This district was retiring Rep. Diane Watson, who championed the cause of the Cherokee Freedmen.
Congratulations to Karen Bass. Future Rep. Bass, will you take up the cause of Rep. Watson? Will you be the champion for the rights of the oppressed Native Americans? Will you stand up for those who HAVE HAD their civil rights violated by their own tribes?
