“When I joined the Marine Corps, I was still Jamaican. But this country had done so much for me, I was willing, willing to die for this country,” Sears said during his victory speech early Wednesday morning.

“If you have not noticed, I am black. And I have been black all my life, but that’s not what it’s about,” she continued.

“What we need to do now is deal with the Commonwealth’s business,” she said. “We have things to take care of. We want to fully fund our historically black colleges and universities. We want safer neighborhoods, safer communities, and our children will get a good education.”

Sears are expected to defeat the democratic opponent, the state of Hala Ayala, in the race, and will be the first colored woman and woman to assume the position of lieutenant governor in Virginia’s history.

She immigrated to the United States from Jamaica as a child and was the director of a Salvation Army homeless shelter before entering politics. She also owns an appliance and plumbing repair shop in Virginia and has previously served as vice president of the Virginia Board of Education.

She described her expected victory for “Fox & Friends” as a “God-thing” Wednesday morning, saying she had a “ragtag employee, you know, very little money, spent. Profits, if you will.”

“I’m trying to find the words because I’m still processing them,” Sears added.

Conservatives and supporters celebrated her expected victory on social media, with many sharing a viral image of her with an AR-15 rifle while on a shooting range earlier this year.

Virginia also elected Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin as governor on Tuesday in an election previously expected to swing in favor of Democrat Terry McAuliffe.
