Gordon Klingenschmitt (below) is the minister who got elected to the Colorado House last year despite a laundry list of jaw-dropping past statements.
The seat is held by Senate President Bill Cadman, who will reach his term limit in 2016.
Klingenschmitt said he fasted for 72 hours before the Wednesday night meeting and asked for God’s advice on his political future.
God told a Republican to run for higher office? Shocking.
Notice in that video how tepid the applause is… Even at a town hall meeting, his own constituents don’t seem very enthusiastic about his plan.
On the upside, he’s not running for re-election in the House. So if he gets defeated in this race, it could be the last time we see him in elected office.
