During a recent town hall meeting in Winder, U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, a Republican from Athens, wanted people to be clear he is secure with his gender identity.

"I don't want to pay for a sex change operation. I'm not interested. I like being a boy," he said in his criticism of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

Broun threw his hat into the ring for Sen. Saxby Chambliss' seat after Chambliss said he was not seeking another term because he's tired of all the gridlock in Washington, D.C. Chambliss also made headlines when he vocalized his opposition to same sex marriage with the pithy statement, "I'm not gay, so I'm not going to marry one."

Attorney Art Gardner of Marietta announced today he is running for the GOP nomination to replace outgoing Sen. Saxby Chambliss — and he is not afraid to say he supports same-sex marriage.

“81 percent of Americans under 30 believe in marriage equality. How can our party expect to win, if we exclude major segments of the population with divisive social policies?” Gardner said, citing a Washington Post/ABC poll, in a press release today announcing his candidacy.
