DescriptionA Republican in Missouri who hopes to replace Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in the U.S. Senate said he expects to come home to a home-cooked meal from his his fiancée at 6 p.m. every night, and plans for his future daughters to do the same.

Courtland Sykes on Tuesday took to Facebook to repost comments he wrote last year, to clear up his views on women's rights.

"In light of recent questions regarding my views on Women's Rights, attached is my full statement," he posted on his verified "Courtland Sykes for Senate" Facebook page. On whether he favors women's rights, Sykes said his fiancée, Chanel Rion, has given him orders to favor them, "so I'd better."

"But Chanel knows that my obedience comes with a small price that she loves to pay anyway: I want to come home to a home-cooked dinner at six every night, one that she fixes and one that I expect one day to have daughters learn to fix after they become traditional homemakers and family wives — think Norman Rockwell here and Gloria Steinem be damned," he said in the post.

The comments were apparently a part of an 11-page statement he sent to the St. Louis Dispatch last year. Sykes, who filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on Sept. 26, 2017, has crafted a Trump-style message on border security and building a strong military. According to the St. Louis-Dispatch, as of October, he had been a Missouri resident for less than a year.
