Senator Paul Koering endorsed

Senator Paul Koering, one of only two openly gay members of the Senate and the only Republican, was re-endorsed yesterday. It was his first endorsement battle after coming out.

The good: maybe bigotry isn't as big a part of the Republican party as it may appear.
The bad: it took seven ballots, and his challenger may still run against him in the primary.

Seeing as how I don't live in the district, this really doesn't affect me, but it is interesting all the same considering the circumstances.

Just because he is an out gay doesn't make him a good person, he is still a hypocritical republican! He authored a bill (SF121) that would make it illegal for people to raise dogs in their homes! He supports the big puppy mills with industrial facilities over the small breeder raising a few show/pet dogs for fun. He can’t care about the dogs-only about the big-money commercial breeders!
