GAY50: Last week the group Log Cabin Republicans made a second series of endorsements for the upcoming mid-term elections. While I believe our nation will be best served by breaking the two-party system and finding true Independent candidates who can win, we are not currently at that point.
If you are in any of the districts of the candidates below, you may find these to be allies for our community that would serve our country well.
