67. Can you name a single "more attractive candidate" that once they took
office in a very conservative state took as their very first order of business guaranteeing the civil rights of gays?

A position that is not supported by the legislature and that is attacked by the state attorney general?


Yes its nice when progressive politicians in deep blue states take progressive positions but it actually is a lot more telling

when they take it states where it is deeply unpopular and he fights for it.

I'll be interested in seeing what illustrations you can provide of a recent Democrat that has taken a more unpopular progressive stand for Gay civil rights.
