Steven Baleshiski (R), a legislative candidate in Connecticut who made harsh comments about Parkland High shooting victims, quit his race after losing town committee backing, the Hartford Courant reports.
Said Baleshiski: “I’m not supposed to speak ill of David Hogg because he is a ‘survivor.’ Apparently if you survive horrific events, that makes the stupidity spewing out of your mouth above reproach. I disagree. Hogg can burn in hell, I don’t care what he survived. Survivors who wage war on my country are my enemies.”
Republicans hope to find a new candidate.Save to Favorites
