Family dinners must be awkward at the Regan house.
The daughter Robert Regan -- a Republican running for a state representative seat in Michigan -- is openly opposing her father's candidacy in a tweet that has now gone viral with 170,000 likes and more than 34,200 retwetts.
Regan's daughter Stephanie tweeted the following this week:
