SMU Students Analyze the 2012 Presidential Election

The Other Congressional Candidate

Leave a comment

The Iowa Congressional races have been incredibly tight, and will be vital to both parties in this election. In Iowa’s first district, Bruce Braley and Ben Lange are each capable of winning next week. However, there’s one other candidate in this district who is causing a stir as well.

Meet George Krail

 He’s running in Iowa’s first district on a one-issue platform: pro-life.

Or more specifically, anti-abortion. This is what is written on the front page of his website.

“As followers of Jesus Christ, we are called to protect babies from murder. Obama kills babies with his policies, and is trying to force the church to pay for drugs that murder the unborn. My message is simple: no Christian can ethically vote for Obama. If they do, they have sinned against innocent blood, and against God Himself.”

He has been running graphic ads in Iowa, and his candidacy seems to stem more from advancing the issue rather than as a legitimate effort. You can watch two of his ads here, but be warned, they are graphic.
