Randall Terry, the founder of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue, has entered the Congressional race in New York’s 26th district. The district, which includes the cities of Ithaca, Binghamton, and Kingston, is currently held by Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D). Terry is running under an ultra-right conservative platform. During his speech announcing his candidacy, he denounced lesbian and gay rights and abortion rights, and advocated terminating all social services funded by the federal government.
