    I will refrain from speculating in deference to your decision making process, even though I'm much more intrigued now.  Well, good luck to your MIL assuming that is what I should be wishing for her run.

      I'm kind of in the same boat.  My family knows George Holding (he's running for NC-13) and he is very Republican and super anti-gay.  He even has an anti-gay radio ad.  The Democrat is expected to lose anyway, so is it bad if I vote for Mr. Holding in November?  I guess he has to make it through the primary first.

        is it because you know him?  I have voted for people who were pretty anti-gay before because they were the least bad option available at the time, but I would not generally simply because I know someone.

        You are endorsing the candidacy of every person you vote for, and saying you agree with their policy positions and campaign promises.

        Think about that.

      I'm rooting for her to win - the primary at least! :)
