Fundamentalist Legislators Lose Primaries In Two States

Colorado state Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt (R-Colorado Springs) and U.S. Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) lost primaries for their respective seats in June.

Klingenschmitt, who once publicly prayed for the death of Americans United Executive Director Barry W. Lynn, had decided to abandon his seat in the state House of Representatives in order to run for the Colorado Senate. He lost to veteran Republican lawmaker Bob Gardner.
