Missouri Baptist Convention Promotes Republican CandidatesOctober 31, 2012
Ethics Daily ran my latest article today, which is titled "Missouri Baptist Convention Promotes Republican Candidates." It reports how three Republican candidates for statewide office in Missouri--a Presbyterian and two Catholics--were present at the Missouri Baptist Convention (MBC) annual meeting this week and publicly recognized by MBC leaders just one week before election day. This represents merely the latest Republican politicking effort by MBC leaders. Candidates promoted were: U.S. Senate hopeful Todd Akin, gubernatorial hopeful Dave Spence, and state Attorney General hopeful Ed Martin.
