Why is it that only after finding out that Jim Neal is gay are Democrats and DSCC chairman Chuck Schumer now out re-recruiting Kay Hagan to run against Elizabeth Dole?
I thought the Dems were the open and inclusive party as compared to those bigoted (and in many cases it seems, closeted) Republicans? Is this leading Democrats admitting that they don’t think a homosexual man can get elected statewide in North Carolina?
If they truly believed sexual orientation doesn’t matter, then why not jump in and throw full support behind Jim Neal?
It seems just a wee bit convenient that Schumer who originally wanted Grier Martin over Hagan now finds Hagan to be an acceptable candidate when his only other option is a gay man.
