Gun-toting, not gay pastor Jody Hice is getting glad-handed by homophobes, picking up the endorsement of an anti-gay group in his effort to win a metro Atlanta Congressional seat.
In the race to replace Rep. Paul Broun in the 10th Congressional District, pastor and radio talk show host Jody Hice got a boost Monday from the Family Research Council. Connie Mackey, the president of FRC Action PAC, told us that the PAC would probably buy some print and broadcast media on Hice’s behalf.
“We have a strong belief that there are reinforcements needed of strong cultural conservatives up on the Hill and he certainly fits the bill,” Mackey said. “He’s got a great base following and we think he can be elected and be not only a conservative voice but an active participant.”
FRC Action PAC also endorsed Hice in his 2010 race in the 7th District, when he lost a primary runoff to Rep. Rob Woodall.
FRC is also backing state Sen. Barry Loudermilk in his campaign for the 11th Congressional District seat.
The expansive 10th District includes portions of more than two-dozen counties and slices of metro Atlanta and Athens. The GOP primary is an effort to replace U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, an anti-gay wingnut who’s quite fond of his boy penis. He’s among a clown car full of anti-gay candidates seeking to replace the retiring U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss.
