Gay Republican Don Guardian Elected Mayor of Atlantic City [View all]

There were lots of exciting election LGBT-centric results all across the country last night: ally and gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe eked by with a win in Virginia, Seattle elected an out mayor, Ed Murray and, a little closer to home, openly gay Republican Don Guardian won the race to become mayor of Atlantic City. Press of Atlantic City reports:

“It’s very humbling,” said Guardian, who admitted he worried down to the last few districts as the numbers came in for the tight race.

“Sometimes David beats Goliath,” the mayor-elect told supporters who crowded into the Tun Tavern to hear him claim victory. He joked about writing three speeches, including a concession speech and one if the race were “too close to call.”

Those who gathered cheered that he didn’t need to give either one of those. Before the speech, he admitted he was unsure victory would come.


Lost me at 'Gay Republican.' Every Gay Republican (few, mostly lawyers and bankers) I've ever know was more interested in making money than progressing America.
