Connecticut Republican Senate Candidate Loses Conservative Endorsement After Abandoning DOMA

 

Drop the defense of DOMA and you will lose conservative support -- support which can prove critical, come election day:

Peter Wolfgang, director of the conservative Family Institute of Connecticut, has taken back his endorsement of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon, although he is still voting for her “because her victory could mean the end of Roe v. Wade.”

The announcement, first reported by the Hartford Courant, was on the institute’s Facebook page Monday.

Wolfgang had endorsed McMahon in September, but pulled back when she said after a political debate Sunday that she now backs repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act.

“I’m still voting for Linda because her victory could mean the end of Roe v. Wade. But because Linda McMahon flip-flopped and now supports a repeal of DOMA — the one federal law that stops Connecticut’s judicially imposed re-definition of marriage from being imposed on the rest of the nation — my September 18th endorsement of her is no longer accurate,” he wrote on Facebook. -- New Haven Register
