Let's get one thing clear—the world is always a better place for the LGBT community when a Tea Party candidate goes down in an election, and goes down hard.And that's exactly what happened in Tuesday's GOP ...
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.
Michelle Nunn, daughter of former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn, officially jumped into the race today as a Democrat to replace Republican U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss — and she's already been tagged as being President Obama's "hand-picked liberal" by none other than gay-hating GOP candidate Karen Handel.
Nunn is CEO of Points of Light, a nonprofit with close ties to the Bush family.
In an interview with Jim Galloway, political reporter for the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Nunn said she personally favors marriage equality.
