Iowa's most anti-LGBT group hoping to elect like-minded US Senator

by Jeremy Hooper

Iowa's exceedingly anti-LGBT group, The Family Leader, is teaming up with exceedingly anti-LGBT commentator Erick Erickson for a forum in which they will grill the GOP hopefuls who are vying for the U.S. Senate seat that five term Democrat Tom Harkin is vacating:

As of now, proudly pro-LGBT Democrat Bruce Braley (a current congressman and member of the LGBT Equality Caucus) has a sizable lead over any of these four potential candidates. It is simply ludicrous for these Republican hopefuls to run to The Family Leader, an organization that frankly has had no electoral success to speak of, in hopes of changing that fate. A principled Republican would reject Bob Vander Plaats' animus-driven agenda and instead put his or her mind toward actual issues affecting Americans.

But if these hopefuls want to distract their way to loss, alongside one man who claims that "comparing gay rights activists to the Nazis is fitting" and another who has repeatedly referred to homosexuality as a "public health risk," who am I to stop them?
