California lawmaker criticized for appearing to only inviting Christians to town hall

A Republican lawmaker recently elected to the California state Senate sparked criticism this week for only appearing to invite Christians to a town hall, Action News Now reported Friday.

Brian Dahle, an assemblyman and farmer from Bieber, won a special election for a California Senate seat earlier this month and was sworn into office on Wednesday.

He scheduled a “Faith and Values Town Hall” on Thursday, moderated by Mayor Julie Winter.
