On Saturday, June 12, 2021, the Republican National Hispanic Assembly hosted a candidate spotlight for Kathy Barnette, candidate for U.S. Senate, at the Bilingual Christian Church located at 121 South 13th Street in Harrisburg City. Kathy seeks to become the first Black Republican woman elected to the U.S. Senate in 2022.

The lineup of speakers included words from Edel Santana, Dauphin County Chairman, and Sheila Perez-Smith, Cumberland County Chairman, and the Commonwealth of PA, both proud Puerto Ricans fighting for their families, freedoms, and values. Santana believes the way to fight is to vote. Perez-Smith notes that before the election, there was no Hispanic assembly for Hispanic conservatives. She says they are here to make a difference differently than in the past. As she introduced Kathy Barnette, she explained that Kathy would speak for us, “it’s enough,” and also quoted it in Spanish “ja basta ya.”

During Kathy Barnette’s speech, she spoke about the troubles facing America, the mistakes of the past, critical race theory, yet in the end determining the United States of America is the greatest country in the world; there is no close second.
