Gay candidates bank some victories

by Jeremy Hooper

Elections held this past Tuesday featured several victories for homo-gay candidates. Among them:

-- Bill Rosendahl beat Flora Gil Krisiloff by more than 6,000 votes to pick-up a seat on the Los Angeles City Council

-- Mike Gin was elected Mayor of Redondo Beach, CA with a spectacular 60 percent of the popular vote

-- Dan Ryan won a seat on the Portland, OR School Board

-- Kevin Lee won his primary for the Lansdowne, PA Borough Council and Dan Miller placed a very close 3rd in the Harrisburg, PA City Council primary to secure a spot on the general election ballot

Inspired by the GLBT victories, we're hearing that Carson Kressley has just announced that he'll be throwing his fabulous satin trimmed, velour lined Marc Jacobs hat into the NYC mayoral race.

It's good that he has a post-"Queer Eye" plan!
