He’s being called Mini-Trump

Jason Lewis, best known for his far-right radio show rants like slavery shouldn’t be illegal, women are too dumb to vote, and his call for a constitutional amendment allowing “any state to peaceably leave the union,” is the Republican candidate for Congress in Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District.

That’s right, the group of people claiming to be the party of Lincoln will be voting for a man who thinks breaking up the Union is fine.

Minnesota Republican Party Co-Chair, who once said Lewis’s comments were “contradictory to the values Republicans share and principles the party was founded upon,” now says “Lewis is uniquely qualified to fight for working families and seniors… Minnesotans need Jason Lewis because he will always stand with Minnesotans!”

Well, we know he will stand with Minnesotans who are racist and misogynistic.

There is only one logical choice for Democrats and Independents who want a worker in congress, not a provocateur.  Angie Craig is a successful businesswoman who will work for jobs, education, affordable tuition, veterans, seniors, our public health, the environment, and national security.

Here is the interesting article in The AtlanticMeet Minnesota’s Mini-Trump that goes into more depth about these topics.
