    Record Number of Openly Gay Candidates Running | Congress.org

    Other openly gay challenger candidates with a real shot of coming to Congress include: Sean Patrick Maloney, taking on freshman Rep. Nan Hayworth (R) in New York’s 18th district; Mark Pocan (D), running in Wisconsin’s open 2nd district; Mark Takano (D), running for California’s new 41st district; and Richard Tisei (R), taking on Rep. John Tierney (D) in Massachusetts’ 6th district. There are at least four other openly gay Congressional candidates this year, according to a count from the pro-LGBT-equality Human Rights Campaign, but all are long shots in states such as Idaho.

    Perhaps it is because the republican opression machine is losing and being gay is no longer considered evil and wrong except in the minds of bigots?

    Perhaps your partisan-darkened sunglasses missed the Republican candidate listed.

    If the Republican candidate wins the election will it slow the "homophobe" bullshit?
