The Last Mensch Standing

Ron Kampeas writes on JTA’s Capital J about Fred Karger an also-run in the Republican nomination for President who differs from the better-known also-runs in that he is still running.

[Fred Karger] is determinedly cheerful although mindful that he is not going to get the Republican nod for president.

As Tablet and others have reported, Karger — who is gay and Jewish — is set on moving his party toward embracing rights for gays.

Still, Karger has shown greater staying power than Mitt Romney’s other rivals.

He’s running ads embarrassing the putative nominee on cable news channels in California, ahead of next month’s primary.
