NASHVILLE (BP) — Pro-family voters scored wins at the polls Nov. 3.
Houston overturned a measure granting protected status to homosexuals and transgendered persons, known as HERO. Both Kentucky and Mississippi elected governors who are pro-life and opposed to same-sex “marriage” and Ohio defeated recreational marijuana.
Ryan Anderson, a senior research fellow at The Heritage Foundation, wrote in an online commentary that Election Day 2015 disproved the “conventional wisdom … that social liberalism is an electoral winner.”
“That’s not true,” Anderson wrote. “At least not in the swing states of Kentucky and Ohio, and not even in the liberal city of Houston. And definitely not last night. There’s a lesson to be learned: Conservatives can win when they refuse to be bullied by elites into silence. Making the public argument against bad policy and in support of good policy can win the day. It just did.”
