Have the chickens come home to roost?

Keith Ellison with Antifa handbookA political scientist and election analyst says the people of Minnesota are clearly becoming more disenchanted with Democrat Keith Ellison in his bid to become Minnesota's attorney general.

A new Star Tribune and Minnesota Public Radio News poll shows that Republican Doug Wardlow has moved seven points ahead of Ellison in the race, despite the fact that 56 of those polled said they do not recognize Wardlow's name. Eight in ten voters do recognize Ellison's name, but more said they had an unfavorable opinion of him than Wardlow.

Ellison has been dogged by an ex-girlfriend's allegations of sexual assault.

Dr. Charles Dunn of Clemson University says the chickens have come home to roost for Ellison.

"The effort made by the Democratic Party to cover for his indiscretions was substantial but in the end could not keep him from facing the truth of what he had done … especially in light of the false efforts made to undo Justice Kavanaugh," Dr. Dunn comments.

And he thinks a couple of things can be concluded if Ellison loses.

Dunn, Charles (Regent Univ.)"Republicans stand to benefit from issues like this, namely indiscrete behavior by officials," notes Dunn. "Republicans have done a better job of cleaning house, especially in the Congress, than Democrats have, so I think the handwriting on the wall indicates that Democrats have yet another problem to overcome in trying to regain their footing in completion with Republicans."

As of September, Ellison had a five-point lead over Wardlow. 

Meanwhile in New Hampshire, a pro-family activist who works to expose the truth about homosexuality hopes the state's voters will not send a radical homosexual to Congress.

The race in New Hampshire's First Congressional District is a battle between black conservative Republican Eddie Edwards and homosexual liberal Democrat Chris Pappas, who currently has a five point lead in the polls. Some political pundits have warned Republicans not to make an issue out of Pappas's sexual orientation, but Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH) does not really agree with that.

"What's sad is even conservatives don't want to talk about this anymore. So if you can't talk about an issue, how can you actually defend your social position," he poses. "If homosexuality is off limits now, how can you debate gay marriage? How can you debate the transgender issue if the media and the power structures are telling us you can't even talk about it?"

LaBarbera says it is really about how Pappas's homosexuality drives his positions on the issues.

LaBarbera, Peter"If you don't want to talk about Chris Pappas's homosexuality, which I think should not be off limits, but if you don't want to talk about that, well then talk about his radical social agenda, whether it be immigration, radical abortion on demand, or this incredibly intrusive and oppressive LGBTQ agenda, which is using government power to punish Christians who happen to oppose homosexuality," the AFTAH president says.

LaBarbera hopes New Hampshire's Libertarian-minded voters will reject Pappas.
