DOUBLE-CROSS!!! KANSAS INTERNETS TROLL DECIDES AGAINST DROPPING OUT OF RACE DESPITE NATIONWIDE REBUKE!!!
Alright dammit, we deserve a great deal of credit for calling this yesterday . . . Now it's news fact . . .
KCTV5: Teen candidate for KS house now says he is staying in the race
In a statement Tuesday, though, he said he is staying in the race as the Democratic nominee for the state legislature despite the “attacks” from his opponents . . . “From the moment I won, I have endured sustained attacks. These attacks against me were far more than I bargained for,” he wrote. “I obviously did not expect to have my entire personal life, especially what I did in middle school, put under that kind of national microscope.”
Coleman said voters chose him not just because of who he is but also for his “platform and for change for our community,” adding that he won’t undo that decision because he is “a flawed individual who has made mistakes.”
The teen also called on voters in the district to make the decision for themselves and not listen to outside national voices or state party leaders.
