Congresswoman Gwen Moore Statement on 15th Milwaukee Aldermanic District:

“With the departure of Willie Hines, after his long and distinguished service, the voters in the 15th Aldermanic District have an opportunity to select a new alderman.

“With so many qualified candidates, from former county supervisor Eyon Biddle Sr. to current county supervisor Russell Stamper II, I am not making an endorsement in this race.

“It is my hope that the individual succeeding Willie Hines serves the 15th district with honor. I wish all candidates the best of luck and look forward to working with the newly elected alderman.

What Ted Cruz Talked About at 10,000 Feet

Before he could make the late Nelson Mandela’s media-mobbed memorial service all about him by very publicly storming out (take that, Cuban President Raul Castro!), Sen. Ted Cruz had to get to South Africa.

His ticket to ride included a lengthy trans-Atlantic jaunt during which several members of the Congressional Black Caucus bent the Texas Republican’s ear about everything from swirling policy initiatives to personal issues.

HOH has confirmed that Cruz, who did not respond to email requests seeking clarification about any interactions whilst traveling, spent at least part of the 40-hour (round trip) voyage getting better acquainted with Reps. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., Elijah E. Cummings, D-Md., John Lewis, D-Ga., and Maxine Waters, D-Calif.

Rep. Moore: Mandela was hero for human rights

MILWAUKEE (AP) - U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore says the world has lost a visionary leader and a hero for human rights with the death of former South Africa President Nelson Mandela.

The Democratic congresswoman and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus met with Mandela in 2005 in Washington. She says it was "a powerful moment that left an indelible mark."

Mandela died Thursday at the age of 95. He became South Africa's first black president after spending nearly one-third of his life as a prisoner of apartheid, a system of white racist rule that he described as evil.

Moore says Mandela's courage and strength freed a nation and reshaped history. She says his life is confirmation that hope and a steadfast dream of freedom will prevail over hatred and fear.
