The Christian Civic League has a preferred Republican candidate for Senate District 21, and it isn't current state Rep. Patrick Flood.
The CCL on Wednesday released a statement saying that while Flood "has served honorably in the Legislature, we do not believe his values reflect our values." The organization is instead backing Ryan Wheaton, a West Gardiner small-business owner and teacher and a candidate backed by "liberty" Republicans and Ron Paul supporters.
The CCL said Flood was a "pro-abortion, pro-same-sex marriage candidate," while Wheaton was a "pro-life, pro-family candidate."
