Maybe It’s Not Always That the Democrats Run Inept Campaigns


I came across this passage in a story about the CA-50 race between Francine Busby and Brian Bilbray:

"I’m voting for anyone who doesn’t have a Latino name," John Lee, a car mechanic at a Shell gas station in downtown San Diego, told me. "I don’t want to encourage any sympathy with these people who are coming here and taking our jobs and our money." Lee said that on other social issues, he was moderate, even liberal. Indeed, Lee readily admitted, he was gay. "I’d like to get married," he said. "But if it comes down to gay marriage or immigration, I’ve got to choose my priorities."


If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
