USA Today has an article on gay candidates winning mainstream acceptance among the voting public, including an Arizona Democratic State Senator considering running for Congress:
And the fact that she’s openly bisexual?
“Arizona doesn’t really care,” the 35-year-old lawyer says, dismissing the issue as irrelevant. “They just want to have low property taxes and no gun control.”
Low taxes and no gun control pretty much accurately describes me, so more power to her. She’s good looking too. If we have bisexual Arizona State Senators running on a guns and money platform, gays aren’t the only political constituency becoming mainstream. This is a victory for our issue too.
UPDATE: I’m told she’s actually a raging lefty, and anti-gun, by people in Arizona who would know better. It’s a shame, but if she wants to convert and bat for the other team, I’d love to have her on our side. As far as your sexual preference, you can be a switch hitter all you want as far as I’m concerned, but on gun rights, we tend to like our politicians to bat from the right side of the plate only.
