BEDFORD, N.Y. – A new campaign video for Republican Nan Hayworth, who has said the federal government should not legalize gay marriage, carries the support of her gay son, CNN reported.
Hayworth is running against Democratic Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney to represent the 18th Congressional District. Maloney, who is in a same-sex marriage, is New York’s only openly gay congressman.
Hayworth’s son, Will, says in the ad that his mother is “compassionate” and not an “extremist,” according to CNN.
