She’s single-handedly bringing “yada yada yada” back.
As we continue along the 2020 presidential election trail, democratic candidates including Tim Ryan, Joe Biden and John Delaney are fighting tirelessly to remain in the eyes of the media and the minds of the American people.
With 25 democrats campaigning to receive the party nomination, it is easy to get lost in the crowd as a potential stand out. Career politicians like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren usually take the prize of generating the most internet traffic and social media buzz after a big event, like the Dem Debates.
But last night, an underdog shined from the shadows: Marianne Williamson.
Marianne Williamson is a New York Times bestselling American author and lecturer. She also has a long list of effort in activism fighting for HIV/AIDS, women’s rights, peace-building, and poverty alleviation advocacy. She’s appeared on TV shows like The Oprah Winfrey Show and Good Morning America to speak about her writing and her work.
Williamson’s political career began in 2014 when she unsuccessfully ran for a House seat for California’s 33rd congressional district. With several respected politicians endorsements, she campaigned for accessible education and free college, climate change, universal healthcare, peacebuilding, and women’s and LGBTQ rights. She finished fourth in the race, falling to Ted Lieu who still serves in this seat.
Williamson stood out as a democrat to watch after the NBC-hosted debate in June. She made considerably bold statements surrounding healthcare, Donald Trump, and immigration. She quickly gained a social media following with Reddit and Twitter users naming her “The Orb Queen.” And she has only become more popular for her eccentric way of speaking since.
Last night, CNN hosted the debate in Detroit, Michigan. By the night’s end, Marianne Willaimson became the most googled candidate in 49 out of 50 states. Steve Bullock took the title in his home state of Montana. The buzz surrounding Williamson’s candidacy is hot.
