Gay Florida Mayor Is a U.S. Senate Hopeful


“North Miami Mayor Kevin Burns, the city’s first openly gay mayor, is not ready to end his political career. Burns, who will be forced out by term limits in May, is making a bid for the U.S. Senate seat occupied by Republican Mel Martinez, who will leave next year. Burns, a Democrat, confirmed that he’s running — but declined to comment further until the official campaign kickoff Tuesday.” [Miami Herald]
