The news lately is that Harold Ford may end up putting up a primary challenge against New York Senator Christine Gillibrand. So how does this former, southern conservative Democrat fit into New York politics? Simple – change his views:
Here’s the clearest sign yet that Harold Ford Jr. is going to challenge Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) in a Democratic primary: The New York Post reports Ford “publicly said for the first time that he was in favor of same-sex marriage.”
When asked on the Today Show, “So you’re now in favor of same sex marriage?”
Ford responded: “Civil unions and same-sex marriage, yes.”
As a congressman from Tennessee, Ford advocated a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.
The rate at which these politicians will change their beliefs to appeal to the electorate is disgusting. If they lose out in one state then they move to another state and morph into a candidate that state’s population could maybe accept. They have no true beliefs or convictions, just a con job.
