Mark Neumann

Mark Neumann is a conservative opponent of gay rights who is challenging openly-gay Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) to fill the seat being vacated by Sen. Herb Kohl (D-WI). In a new campaign fundraiser, Neumann characterizes Baldwin as a “radical leftist” who would undermine traditional marriage and “impact you and your family”:

** She led the fight to redefine marriage to include same-sex pairings. [...]

Outside liberal groups like the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund and EMILY’s List will come in hard with independent attack ads to rip my record and my good character. [...]

No matter where you live in America, her radicalism will have a direct impact on you and your family.

Neumann’s “good character” includes previous statements that he would eradicate homosexuality if he were God and refusal to hire a gay or lesbian employee because that would be “inappropriate.” Read the full attack-riddled mailer:
