Gary Glenn of the American Family Association of Michigan is one of the most rabidly anti-gay Religious Right activists operating today. Just the other day he and Linda Harvey were ranting about how the “severe medical consequences” of being gay make gays an “employment risk.”
So, of course, he is contemplating running for the US Senate:
Gary Glenn is exploring a possible jump into the U.S. Senate race as a Republican challenger to incumbent Debbie Stabenow.
Glenn, 53, of Midland served as GOP Michigan delegate for a decade, is a veteran of the U.S. Army Reserves and has a pro-life stance. He has spoken at a dozen Tea Party events, including the 2009 Midland County Tea Party rally, and has served as the president of the American Family Association.
Although several people have been mentioned in political circles as a GOP challenger to Stabenow, a Democrat, only Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner John P. McCulloch has officially declared his candidacy.
Glenn, in an e-mail released this morning, said the country’s founding values are under assault.
“Our nation’s economy, security, liberties, moral foundation and founding principles — all that’s made America and Americans exceptional in the history of the world — are under attack from within,” Glenn said.
