“None of us are perfect, but students, faculty, alumni and [the Liberty University choir] deserve better,” he explained.

Walker was a baptist pastor prior to his political career.

Falwell, Jr. has been in a scandal ofter posting — and then deleting — a picture of him holding a woman who is not his wife on a yacht — with both of the pants unbuttoned.

Published

Top Republican officials are "horrified" by the early returns of Democratic mail-in ballots.

Democratic voters are requesting and returning mail-in ballots at a far higher rate than Republican voters so far in key battleground states, which could make it impossible for the GOP to hold on to the White House and their Senate majority, reported the Washington Post.

And it completely undermined the supposed point of the debate: informing voters about the issues. Instead, it showcased the candidates' respective personalities, at least to some degree. While unpleasant, it may have been informative in its own way.
