This isn't exactly a mid-term election, but it might give President Barack Obama a taste of what is to come next year when he faces a full re-haul of Congress.
gaysocialites.blog has endorsed candidates in various races and of course denounced Proposition One in Maine, the measure to ban gay marriage.
Proposition One in Maine:
gaysocialites.blog, of course, encourages you to vote against Proposition 1 in Maine. If this proposition fails, and I think it will, Maine will be the first state to vote in favor of marriage equality. Please get out and vote for what's right if you're in Maine! Vote no on Prop 1.
Mayor, New York City: Michael Bloomberg (R):
"When Democratic Governor David Paterson announced legislation that would legalize gay marriage in New York, Mayor Bloomberg was right by his side. Mike has always been a friend to the gays, and he has always pushed for equality for our community.... On November 3rd, gaysocialites.blog encourages you to make the right choice and re-elect Michael Bloomberg as Mayor. Bill Thompson is the wrong man for the job, whether he's a Democrat or not!"
City Council, District 1 - New York CIty, Margaret Chin (D):
"The race for New York's City Council in the First District hits close to home for me, literally. That's because I live in the Financial District, and that is also the World Headquarters for gaysocialites.blog... Clearly a strong personality and a grass roots leader, Chin is what we need to represent the First District of the greatest city in the world. The person who represents from Chinatown to Battery Park and from South Ferry to Battery Bark City also represents the land on which City Hall sets. We need a dedicated leader with a solid agenda. That's why gaysocialites.blog would like to endorse Margaret Chin for Cty Council in our district."
City Council - District 3, New York City- Christine Quinn (D - Speaker):
"I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The third district has a chance to do something great for New York City by re-electing Christine Quinn to the City Council We can definitely use her leadership! "
Governor, New Jersey - Jon Corzine (D):
"...for the LGBT community, the choice should be clear. Jon Corzine is a pioneer for gay rights, and the governor has promised to sign gay marriage into law in New Jersey within the next year."
Mayor, Hoboken (New Jersey) - Dawn Zimmer:
"In Tuesday's special election, Zimmer is hoping to hold onto the Mayor's office. We hope she does too. Zimmer has offered a fresh, grassroots approach to governing Hoboken's highly populated one square mile. She has reinstated a sense of trust in the mayor's office and hit the ground running with only a few months in office. Last Spring, Zimmer's campaign told gaysocialites.blog exclusively that she supports legislation to legalize gay marriage in New Jersey."
Mayor, Houston (Texas) - Annise Parker (D):
"Houston could be the first top 10 US city to elect an openly gay mayor tomorrow, and things are looking good for Annise Parker."
Whether you support our choices or not, please exercise your right to vote on Tuesday if your state is holding elections.
We'll have results from these races and others on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
