Mike Lee removes "anchor babies" from website - will Tim Bridgewater follow suit?

Ethan Millard noticed that Mike Lee’s website has removed the term “anchor babies.” before: after:

I’ll be honest, I’m pleasantly surprised.

The term “anchor babies,” though offensive to some moderates and liberals, posed absolutely no threat to Lee at convention. None. As I noted earlier, if anything, he stood to gain from it’s use- especially if he were criticized for it.

It’s just a couple of words.

But Mike Lee deserves to be recognized for doing the right thing- especially when the right thing isn’t necessarily the politically expedient thing.

Candidates for high office don’t often behave like this.

Way to go Mike!

The next question is- will Tim Bridgewater also pull anchor babies from his website?
