It’s a big day for homo-politico Jim Neal, who’s running for the Democratic senatorial seat in North Carolina.
Longtime state leader Kay Hagan’s also running, allegedly after the Democrats opposed Neal’s candidacy, for they feel a gay man can’t win against Republican Elizabeth Dole. Neal obviously disagrees, as you can tell from his closing arguments during a recent debate. The former business man’s candidacy also caused a stir last week when gay non-profit Human Rights Campaign refused to endorse him, leading many to call for the group’s collective head.
Voters, of course, will have the final word today, when they choose between Neal and Hagan. If you’re in North Carolina, you should get on out there and vote for whomever you prefer. If you’re not
I am a young gay voter in NC, and I didn’t vote for Neal. I based my decision on what his political beliefs are, not his sexuality. While I think it would be great for him to win the nomination, ultimately I think that there are stronger candidates who are better placed to beat Dole in November. Unfortunately, the media seems to count Neal out based solely on his sexual orientation. He also doesn’t have the campaign finances to wage a huge advertising campaign, which is not helping his chances.
