A Republican Mississippi governor candidate refused to wake Wednesday on his decision to wear a reporter from shadowing his campaign because she is a woman.
Robert Foster, a current state representative, blocked Larrison Campbell from Mississippi today from shadowing the campaign with reference to "Billy Graham Rule", which, as Foster explained, is believed to "avoid any situation that may cause suspicion or compromise [his] marriage. "
Before our decision to run, my wife and I were obliged to follow "Billy Graham Rule", which is to avoid any situation that may cause suspicions or compromises of our marriage. I'm sorry. Campbell does not share these views, but my decision was out of respect for my wife. https://t.co/5tjH2x2g65

Foster responded to an article on the ban on a tweet Wednesday night New York Times who read, "I refuse to change my moral attitude to any problem because it is not popular among the radical left. My wife and the state of Mississippi deserve a governor who does not endanger their beliefs, and I hold onto my weapons. "

"I will not be intimidated in the silence of a group of radical socialists and communists whose goal in life is to break down America," fetuses also tweeted. "In fact, I look forward to fighting their radical left-wing agenda."
Prior to the article New York Times Campbell published a piece about Foster's decision to prevent her from shadowing campaign Tuesday.
It partly reads "Colton Robison, Foster's campaign director, said a male colleague would have to accompany this reporter on a forthcoming 15-hour campaign trip because they believed the optics of the candidate with a woman, even a working reporter. could be used in a smear campaign to insinuate an extramarital affair.
