MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Wright County Republicans have endorsed Eric Lucero for the state House, bypassing David FitzSimmons after he voted to legalize gay marriage.

Lucero won the endorsement Saturday for District 30B, which covers parts of Wright and Sherburne counties.

Minnesota Family Council supported Lucero, claiming FitzSimmons “betrayed” his constituents. Council CEO John Helmberger says Lucero will promote the values of life and religious freedom.

A message left at FitzSimmons’ home Saturday was not immediately returned.

FitzSimmons is a first-term House member. He previously told The Associated Press he stands by his decision about same-sex marriage, even if it costs him his seat. He also says even if Lucero takes his seat Lucero won’t be able to undo gay marriage.

Lucero is a city councilman in the town of Dayton.
