Mark Clayton, who won the Democrat primary to run against Republican Senator Bob Corker, has been dumped by his party for being too conservative.
Clayton is vice president of a group called Public Advocate of the United States. Below are ideas which this group upholds, (quoted from their own website) which are ANATHEMA to the Democrat party,
A federal traditional marriage (man-woman) amendment to the Constitution to defend tradional marriage from assaults from those who claim to promote “same sex marriage”;
School prayer and the freedom of religious expression in public places;
Faith-based and community initiatives;
The promotion and protection of the Boy Scouts, organized sports and other activities that reinforce morality, accountability and leadership in our youth;
Tax cuts and the exposure of wasteful “pork barrel” spending for the benefit of liberal special interests;
Equality under the law, regardless of one’s sexual orientation.
The Tennessee Dems so strongly oppose these values that they threw out the winner of their primary, and have essentially conceded the Senate race to the Republicans.
