Lowe, Gaines; Hi, Mayor

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2010-04-13 At 9.26.46 Pm-1This just in from Gay Politics:

Gainesville, Florida elected its first openly gay mayor tonight in a remarkably close and closely-watched race that saw blatant anti-gay attacks in the days leading up to a runoff election.

City Commissioner Craig Lowe will become the first openly gay mayor in the northern Florida, and one of fewer than 30 openly LGBT mayors serving in the U.S., if he survives an automatic recount, triggered by the winning margin of just 35 votes.

Only a 35 vote margin? Holy razor thin crapballs, it's a good thing "Glee" didn't come on until after polls closed!

**UPDATE, 4/16: He's been cerrified!
