I led the party in good times and bad election campaign.” There is a need for a “real restart”, said Spahn.

Spahn wants to remain in defeat in the CDU-leadership

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer Spahn threw a backward-looking company policy. “I voted with Conviction for the Opening up of marriage,” said the openly gay and with his Partner married Spahn. If his marriage is called “in one breath with incest or polygamy, meets me personally”.
