One of the candidates for House District 85 is sending out this flyer:
"Nullification" is a concept without legal merit and as a political idea, it was a contributor to the Civil War. pic.twitter.com/7AqAJA8RIv
— Senator David Holt (@davidfholt) June 30, 2015
The seat was last won by David Dank, who campaigned to keep it in the family after wife Odilia ran up against term limits. (Mrs. Dank died in 2013; Mr. Dank died this past April.) A special election will be held this fall; four Republicans, including Mr. Jackson, will meet in a primary in July. (Only one Democrat, Cyndi Munson, filed for the seat.) District 85 is generally just north of me.
As for Senator Holt’s observation aren’t we about to do Civil War II anyway?
(On the nullification idea itself, see Cooper v. Aaron.)
