Richard Burr. The MARYLAND US Senate primary. Gay stuff.

Our senior US senator told us he wasn’t getting into that gay “crap,’‘ but apparently that gay “crap” has found HIM:  North Carolina’s Richard Burr apparently has a pick in a crowded Republican Senate primary race in Maryland, where 14 candidates are vying for retiring…

#nc-02: The lyin’ queen keeps the b.s. flowing
