About 20 minutes ago, received an e-mail from an acquaintance, parroting a liberal talking point, telling me that extremists had taken over the GOP. Not long after that, opened an e-mail providing evidence showing a much more tolerant party.
In the latter, Scott Schmidt reported that “the Republican Party of Los Angeles County and the California Republican Party” had endorsed West Hollywood small business owner Brad Torgan. . . . Torgan is only one of seventeen non-incumbent candidates for the State Assembly to receive the State Party’s nod before the June 5, 2012 election. The endorsement will be published alongside the Candidate’s name on the sample ballot sent to voters before the election.”
Oh, and Brad Torgan is gay.
And he supports the unifying small government principles which bring together most Republicans, heralding the endorsement with these word, “I will fight for limited government, fundamental freedoms and cleaning up Sacramento not because those are Republican values, but because they are what the people of the fiftieth district, and the State of California, are asking for.”
Sounds like the kind of guy I can support. And for whom I will most definitely be voting. (This is my district after all.)
