Ana Sol Gutierrez se lanza al Congreso de EEUU

A principio de semana este medio se enteró de fuentes fidedignas -que no deseaban ser identificadas- que la actual Delegada Ana Sol Gutierrez estaría anunciando su candidatura para ocupar el puesto que ha sido dejado vacante por Chris Van Hollen.

Cronologia:

Cuando la Senadora Barbara Mikulski anunció que se retiraría cuando concluya su período en el 2017 el representante Chris Van Hollen anunció que correría por la vacante que estaría dejando Mikulski...

Lo cual dejó una vacante en el 8o Distrito de Maryland que la Salvadoreña-Americana Ana Sol Gutierrez (D, Distrito 18 Maryland) que actualmente es delegada en el congreso estatal de Maryland decidiera probar suerte y correr por la vacante que estaría dejando Van Hollen en Maryland.

Gutierrez trae un cúmulo de experiencia impresionante y además sería una mujer Hispana de 1a generación que estaría ganando ese distrito (si es electa) y estaría haciendo historia al ser la primera Salvadoreña-Americana en el Congreso Federal de Estados Unidos.
