Anti-Gay Group Endorses Liberal Incumbent Because Republican Candidate Is Gay
The National Organization for Marriage is endorsing Rep. Scott Peters in California’s 52nd district because challenger Carl DeMaio (pictured) is gay.
Even though the Democrat is “wrong on the issues,” NOM would prefer not to see DeMaio take office because of his “own agenda of redefining marriage.” If DeMaio is elected to the U.S. House, NOM warned, “we’re going to have someone in Washington with a platform the tear our beliefs to shreds. Nobody in the media is going to care about his position on pension reform, they’re going to give him a national platform to campaign against marriage and life.”
The letter added that “Peters can’t do any damage as a Democrat in a House of Representatives controlled by Republicans,” so NOM supporters should just hold their nose, vote for him, and pray that in two years the next GOP candidate is a “true conservative.”[su_csky_ad]
