Quoted: Sean Duffy’s mom agrees to vote for him


“People might expect a mom to vote for her own son, but Sean really had to earn my vote.”

Carol Duffy in a new campaign ad for freshman Rep. Sean Duffy. A “lifelong Democrat,” she claims she didn’t come around right away to supporting the Wisconsin Republican, despite giving birth to him. The video shows him making his case to her (a dramatic reenactment, we assume) using a whiteboard with “My Platform” scribbled on top.
