Say, didn't Fred Phelps run for office as a Dem? Why yes, I believe he did... several times in fact. Fred knew where he'd feel at home.

Yes he did.

He never finished better than last in the primaries.

It looks like he was wrong about how Dems would react to him.

The best he did was in one of the two. two way races, where he finished last getting only one out of every three votes.
