Why isn't this in mainstream news sources like the Washington Post and the New York Times I don't always trust these ultra leftist news sources because they tend to stretch and distort the truth for their own personal agenda. At the same token, I would not be surprised if this was true because most right wingers in the GOP are self loathing closet cases.
Perhaps because GAYSTARNEWS is British, not US. And if it's "ultra leftist" as you claim it's not in the US sense.
Second, a minor State primary against an incumbent Republican, which this guy was likely going to lose anyway, might not make the radar of national US news outlets. But it's early yet, we'll see. If the reporting is accurate, it's already making North Carolina news.
But I must admit this reads like an Onion piece. It's almost too absurd. Is this what Republican politics has become?
