Chad Nance, a Winston-Salem freelance journalist who is currently active in electoral campaigning, says poll workers outside the early voting site at the Forsyth County Government Center in downtown Winston-Salem reported to him that the wife of NC Sen. Peter Brunstetter remarked today that her husband sponsored legislation to put the marriage amendment on the primary ballot “to protect the Caucasian race.”
[Nance]: Did you say anything about Caucasians?
Brunsetter: If I did it wasn’t anything race related.
And, in Houston, re: the killing of a former Houston Astros minor leaguer who had become a cop in Mississippi:
I’m oh so confident that neither “White” nor “Hispanic” was race-related either….
