Skip to comments.The new GOP? Republican openly campaigns with gay partner
Posted on 02/14/2014 8:02:21 PM PST by massmike
A Republican seeking congressional office and touting a reform agenda has just made history by becoming the first politician on the campaign trail to bring his gay partner to the forefront, with an advertising film.
I dont see it as such a big deal, said openly gay Carl DeMaio, of his campaign ad for California office that shows him holding hands with his gay partner, in The Daily Mail. He downplayed the ad further, saying that its not really different from other politician hopefuls who show their spouse, their children, their household pets in their ads, the newspaper said.
In the ad, Mr. DeMaio and his partner are seen draped in a rainbow flag, while an off-camera voice says: He believes in equality and diversity and is a defender of our personal freedoms.

Down the gay rabbit hole we go.
My vote goes to social conservatives. No one else.
Reince Priebus vision!
Their “log cabin” is build of faggots.
I’d commit voter fraud just to vote against him TWICE!
this is how the future is breaking down.
democrats are the hardcore marxists.
republicans will shift into democrat moderates.
conservatives will need to be tea party repubs in order to be on ballots and have a chance.
the gop is in the process of becoming the boy scouts, the right wing of thge democrat party, you bet.
Ugh. Let’s be glad when he goes down in flames. And then lets throw Portman out of the senate. This agenda is getting sick and more fascist by the day.
Well, I consider Huckabee a total opportunist who has little in the way of real principles.
this what we get for decades of incrementalism from the left pushing republicans left further and further over time. we’ve got so many repubs who arectually moderate democrats instead of genuine opposition republicans.
and this is exactly what democrats wanted in addition to getting their long term goals implemented.
. . . appears to be neither.
Would never vote for this guy if I lived in his district, he’s flaunting his homosexuality in Republican voters faces.
If he were the best that Republicans could do in this district and were still conservative fiscally, and stated that he’s an open homosexual. I could almost accept it, but to flaunt his relationship in voter’s faces. No, I’d rather have a liberal Democrat.
They’re liberal Democrats rather than “moderate” (the undefined term with respect to the Democratic Party).
If someone is a genuine statist, you cannot count on them being a fiscally responsible conservative whether or not they are a SoLib or a SoCon. There is such a thing as SoCons who are fiscally totally irresponsible; why would one presume it does not happen in local, state and federal gov’ts?
As far as this gay campaigning partner goes, the issue is that his “sexual orientation”, or whatever you want to call it, is emphasized over his positions on fiscal spending, business rights,the war on terror,immigration and other key issues. Would this gay campaigning partner be willing to vote for someone who is actually conservative on gov’t spending, education, immigration, war on terror,business and property rights, the 2nd Amendment and everything else even if said candidate did not support state enforced gay marriage and adoption? If so, then I would say his private sexual life is of nobody’s concern. Of course, very few in the GLBT community would be willing to do this.
Neither do I, as long as he supports individual Freedom, fiscal conservatism and is against 0bama in general...
I wasn’t aware tubby’s social conservative credentials were in question. Wouldn’t surprise me.
Agreed 100%. Even if the residents of Sodom and Gomorrah had low taxes, God would have destroyed that wicked place anyway. Homosexuality and its close cousins abortion, pedophilia, atheism and unionism are evil.
Simpleton rules always lead off a cliff, but they make a few some good $$$ from the suckers.
Look at 2012
So-con Todd Akins.
Fiscal conservative Romney/Ryan.
(Actually, I'd probably not vote for either candidate.)
