I don't think you're over-reacting ; maybe under-reacting is more possible. Is he really interested in having a child to whom he will try sincerely to be a good father - or in just producing another voter ?
And if he arrives home so drunk, they can't be taking their politics very seriously. Are you sure these nights out have ANYTHING genuinely to do with politics at all ? He's a DRUNK with a serious alcohol problem he probably won't admit to, even to himself, and may not at this stage be capable of being either a father or a husband.
Lets see what other readers have to say, but it sounds to me as though your prime concern needs to be about what is best for you and for the children.
He's not likely to change, and may have no motivation to do so. You know this situation is bad and needs to change, and apparently so do your friends. See a personal counsellor to help you decide what's best for you and the children, and maybe consult a lawyer to protect your interests and theirs.
