Mia Love is black, Mormon, Republican and blowing people’s minds — Mia Love is already getting more attention than most of her newly elected congressional colleagues. She is Haitian American, a woman, daughter of immigrants, Mormon, Republican and from Utah, all things that she seems eager to boast about, except when she isn't, as those who contrasted her post-election speech with a subsequent CNN interview noted.

For Democrats, ‘war on women’ message fails to motivate enough voters — CHARLOTTE- What were midterm voters feeling? That would be concern about jobs and the economy and anxiety over Islamic terrorism and the Ebola virus creeping over American borders. A Democratic "war on women" message that helped Terry McAuliffe become Virginia's governor in 2013 did not gain much traction with a 2014 electorate in a foul mood and ready to blame it on President Obama and a gridlocked Congress.

Are Democratic candidates who steer clear of Obama pushing away black voters? — The third in a list of five myths about black voters by The Washington Post 's Nia-Malika Henderson is: Candidates who distance themselves from President Obama risk losing black voters. That may be a myth, because African Americans in the United States lived with compromise before they could even vote, much less vote for a black candidate for the top office in the country.

Hillary Clinton - politician and grandmom - plays to Kay Hagan’s base in North Carolina — CHARLOTTE - Was it happy coincidence that Hillary Clinton's granddaughter is called Charlotte? It certainly helped the former senator, former secretary of state, former first lady and perhaps future presidential candidate get the audience in the Charlotte Convention Center ballroom cheering with the line, "I can't tell you how much we love the name."

In North Carolina, same-sex marriage goes to church — CHARLOTTE - Standing ovations, applause, the sounds of tambourines - and rainbow colors everywhere, on banners and flags and adorning the stoles around the shoulders of clergy celebrating the fact that same-sex marriage is now legal in North Carolina.

Is the South really as bad as a report says it is? — CHARLOTTE - When the headline is "Why the South is the worst place to live in the U.S.," it's an invitation to trash talk. But isn't that what makes stories like this one in The Post so much fun? They are bound to unleash regional pride and get the blood flowing and the stereotypes flying in the comments section.

NFL meeting with black women’s groups on domestic violence a ‘productive’ beginning — Representatives of the Black Women's Roundtable said a meeting with NFL executives on Wednesday was productive, and just the start of a conversation. The roundtable had requested a meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after the league announced a domestic violence advisory panel that included no women of color.

Black women’s groups to meet with NFL on lack of diversity in domestic violence panel — A meeting has been scheduled Wednesday between the National Football League and representatives of the Black Women's Roundtable, which had questioned the lack of diversity on a domestic violence advisory panel.

Fans and domestic violence survivors find common ground on an NFL weekend — CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Though Carolina Panthers fans can't be happy with the Sunday night thrashing their team took in a nationally televised game against Pittsburgh, they didn't mind thinking about football - just football.

Black women’s groups challenge lack of diversity in NFL domestic advisory panel — Amid the controversy and charges of too little, too late hurled toward the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell after publicity involving charges of domestic violence against players, one move has been praised - the announcement this week that the league has named four women to shape new policies on domestic violence and sexual assault.
