"I was impressed by her speech. It got her elected," said Jim Gonzales, a longtime Democratic campaign adviser.
Taylor Hartley is also proud of his wife’s positive spirit and her determination, which led him to recently take the same test his wife did back in college.

"He’s converted," Jamie Hartley says with a giggle.
