Bob Frey campaign has apparently been endorsed by Trojan Man! pic.twitter.com/yAEQxnSLzI— The Man From Okinawa (@jpsanbornmn) August 8, 2014
While Bob Frey's campaign for the open seat in Minnesota House District 47A has provided much fodder, we're not sure if the man wearing "Trojan" drag above is actually endorsing Frey or just standing in front of the booth.
Is this fellow Trojan? Spartan? A Roman Centurian? Ancient military uniforms aren't our thing, but we suspect the latter.
But when Jim Nash supporter and former Waconia City Council member Jim Sanborn tweeted the above photo from the Carver County Fair. Republicans responded in the same spirit:
@jpsanbornmn very "family friendly"— Kelly Eull (@keull) August 8, 2014
@keull I wonder if he fights off dinosaurs too?— The Man From Okinawa (@jpsanbornmn) August 8, 2014
@jpsanbornmn he should have a sword if the costume is historically accurate— Kelly Eull (@keull) August 8, 2014
Bob Frey, who has gained national attention for his extreme views on HIV and Young Earth creationism, and Waconia mayor Jim Nash faces each other in next Tuesday's primary.
