The 60th district is a tough district for Republicans. Robert Jones won 70% of the vote in 2006. So why should Republicans support Charles Ybema?
For one thing, you don't win if you don't show up. Sometimes elections have unexpected results, but you don't win if you don't try.
Further, supporting a strong advocate of liberty can help to change people's minds and help to win other elections in the future. Also, supporting conservative candidates helps them to get experience to win other races.
Charles Ybema is worthy of the support of conservatives.
