First Openly Gay GOP Candidate Running for General Assembly

We’re a little late to this, but with a special election for PA’s 95th House District taking place Tuesday, here’s an election day tidbit to keep in the back of your mind. The Republican in the race–Bryan Tate–is the first openly gay GOP candidate ever to run for the general assembly. If he wins (he’s a relative longshot in a blue area) he’ll join the other two openly gay members of the state House, Democrat Brian Sims and Republican Mike Fleck. [Inquirer]
