Demonbeck posted this as a comment, but I thought that it was so well-said and relevant that it deserved a bigger platform:
Senator Staton –
If your candidate had been as open and honest as you were in this
post, then I’m not so sure he would have lost. I respect your humility
and your courage to step in the lions’ den here with a bunch of sharks
still high on last night’s kill.
I do hope that our State’s GOP Elected officials take a long hard
look at last night’s numbers and what they mean for the direction of
our party. Duluthmom said it best, “I have no problem with someone
using their religious values to guide their decision making, I just
don’t want a narrow religious agenda to dominate government.
