I hear from a reliable Republican source in the area that local party activists were asked to call off an endorsing convention. In this district, Keith Downey, a candidate from the theocratic wing of the Republican party is challenging Ron Erhardt. This is from Downey's philosophy of government (from his website):
God's moral precepts, written into nature and conscience, are the basis for law and liberty.
Does he mean the Levitical laws?
