Hunky Gay Doctor To Run For Gabrielle Giffords’ Congressional Seat

matt-HEINZWe may have found our perfect man: Matt Heinz is an openly gay doctor, dedicated civil servant, and now, a candidate for Gabrielle Giffords’ congressional seat.

The Democratic state Representative from Tucson, AZ, announced yesterday that he would be running as Giffords’ replacement, reports the Phoenix New Times. He’s the first person to jump into the race.

“It is with deep respect for Congresswoman Giffords and her work that I humbly submit my candidacy to the people of southern Arizona,” Heinz said in a statement. “Gabby has come so far in her recovery, and I wish her continued healing. Gabby put southern Arizona before party or ideology and that legacy must be continued.”

“I will use my skills as a doctor and legislator to solve problems and help create jobs in this difficult economy,” Heinz continues. “Working with both parties, we must rebuild our infrastructure, lower health care costs, create new sources of energy and support education to accelerate the economy in southern Arizona.”

Paging Dr. Heinz: are you single? We’d make a great First Lady if you run for governor.

      Sad that the only thing that Queerty can say about him… is that he is a Hunk… I guess that is the only reason to vote for him is how hot he is

      Shallow… Very Shallow

      I’d rather vote for a republican than a
      profit jackal of the AMA.

      OMG, he looks like the illegitimate lovechild of James VanderBeek and Bob Saget! (not saying that’s a bad thing, the James parts are hot)

      Now we know that he’s not single (thanks to the GOP Gay Sheriff controversy)!
