A Republican official from Kansas called Democratic congressional candidate Sharice Davids a “kickboxing lesbian Indian” on social media.

The Facebook message was written by Republican precinct committeeman Michael Kalny and sent to Anne Pritchett, president of the Johnson County Democratic Women’s north chapter.

Davids is an attorney and former professional mixed martial arts fighter who won the Democratic nomination for a House seat in Kansas.

“Little Ms. Pritchett- you and your comrades stealth attack on Yoder is going to blow up in your leftist face,” Kalny wrote, the Kansas City Star reported.

“The REAL REPUBLICANS will remember what the scum DEMONRATS tried to do to Kavanaugh in November.

“Your radical socialist kickboxing lesbian Indian will be sent back packing to the reservation.”

Davids is running against Republican Kevin Yoder for the 3rd congressional district seat.

If Davids wins in the midterm elections in November, she will become the first openly gay member of the Kansas Congressional delegation.

She will also become the first female Native American lawmaker in Washington.

Last month, a Republican Congressional candidate defended voting against a ban on gay ‘cure’ therapy.

New Hampshire state lawmaker Steve Negron is the GOP candidate for the US House of Representatives in the state’s Second Congressional District.

He was challenged over his vote in an interview with local TV station WMUR, as noted by Talking Points Memo.

In the interview, which took place last month, Negron was challenged about his vote on gay ‘cure’ therapy and appeared to defend the practice.

Negron said: “I did not vote for that [bill].

“I believe that’s something that, when you look at these young children that are trying to make a decision, and I remember when I was 15, 16 I was confused, I had a lot of options in my life.

“I think we need to be able to help them understand what it is, give them the right information, and let them get the treatment that they need to understand what the situation is.

“I think the parents have a huge role in that as well, and that’s why I think we should be able to help them.”
