Randall Terry to run against Florida GOP leader

From the Lakeland, Florida Ledger:

Randall Terry, who founded the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue and helped lead the effort to reinsert Schiavo's feeding tube, officially launched his GOP primary campaign Wednesday to unseat former Senate President Jim King.

Terry, with about 25 supporters standing behind him, said King no longer represents the Republican base. King was one of the nine Republicans who teamed with Democrats to block a bill in the last legislative session aimed at keeping Schiavo alive.

"The Terri Schiavo matter was unforgivable to many of the Republican loyalists. His appointment of Democrats to key positions (in the Senate) alienated another entire group and the third thing is his stand on medical malpractice. Those three things have infuriated people," said Terry, 46.

While I agree with Randall Terry's stance and am appalled by King's cowardice, the truth of the matter is: Randall Terry has been made the lightening rod of Liberal Media wrath for Conservative Christians for decades now. He's fighting an uphill battle. I wish him the best, but he'll need a real miracle to pull it off in the face of the overwhelming media bias against him.
