The longtime chief strategist for Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is offering to run a free campaign for whoever runs to unseat "infanticide promoter" and Virginia Democratic Del. Kathy Tran, after she introduced a bill that would allow abortions up until the moment of birth.

Doug Stafford, who currently runs "Rand Pac," is in the business of electing "pro-liberty, pro-constitution" candidates, and he's serious about getting Tran out of office.

What are the details?

A firestorm was unleashed this week after footage circulated of Tran defending her proposed legislation on Tuesday, where she admitted that it would allow a woman to request an abortion even at the point she was in labor.

The next day, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) tried to defend the bill during a radio interview — but ended up causing more furor when he confirmed that under the measure lifting abortion restrictions, "If a mother was in labor...the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that's what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and mother."

Tran and Northam have defended their comments and maintained their support of the legislation.

What's this about a campaign?

On Thursday, Stafford responded on Twitter to Tran's attempt to "clarify" her position further, by offering to run a free campaign against the "infanticide promoter."

He followed that message with others saying the "offer is real."

Stafford told TheBlaze that he's serious.

"As a pro-life Virginian, this week's display of normalizing and legalizing infanticide and late abortions sickened me," he said. "Delegate Tran and Governor Northam showed their true colors this week and both should leave office in shame, either by resigning, or in the case of Delegate Tran, by being defeated in 2019."

He added, "I'm pleased to offer any and all assistance to those efforts."

Stafford previously served for three years as Sen. Paul's chief of staff on Capitol Hill, and was an adviser for his 2016 presidential campaign, The Daily Caller reported.
