This is gonna be an interesting race and will test the "gay coalition"...

via Reuters.
Chelsea Manning, the transgender U.S. Army soldier who served seven years in military prison for leaking classified data, is seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination for the U.S. Senate seat from Maryland, according to Federal election filings seen on Saturday.

Manning, who was granted clemency by former U.S. President Barack Obama, was released in May from a U.S. military prison in Kansas where she had been serving time for passing secrets to the WikiLeaks website in the biggest breach of classified data in the history of the United States.

Democratic Senator Ben Cardin was elected in 2006 to that seat and is expected to run for re-election this year. He is the senior Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Story here. 

Gonna get racial on you guys for a second.  I've watched with a bit of humor, amazement and alarm at how the black community just rolled over for the gay agenda led by former President Obama.

Before Obama was elected, black ministers and church goers were the most vehemently anti-gay group in America.  Full stop.  You can't even debate it.

When Obama turned the corner black ministers ignored their past teachings  and flipped like a dime to his new dictate (quite honestly this has given me much misgivings about modern religion...if a change in what was said to be a bible based belief can be made based on the pronouncements of one man then what good is it...I seek my own path when it comes to understanding God).

So back on task.

We have Chelsea running for Senate?

This will be interesting  on two fronts.  Watching the gay community.  From what I can tell they have a somewhat strained relationship with their Transgender members.  Why?  I have no idea.  Just the impression I get.  Additionally it will be interesting to see who the black community supports. Will they support a transgender candidate or back another Dem that is not delivering for the community?

In the end I guess it doesn't matter.

We're talking about Maryland.

They're fucked either way they go.
