So, we already wrote about Lieutenant Governor Donna Lynne getting in the Democratic primary for Governor, but apparently, she announced for realz this time this morning. While most of her announcement was feel good fluff, there was one part of her speech that caught our attention. Good thing Revealing Politics was on hand to capture it in all its glory. Just watch.
