Record Number of Gay Candidates Win

Gay Politics notes that more openly gay candidates won election to public office in 2010 than in any year in America's history.

At least 106 of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund's record-breaking 164 endorsed candidates were winners as of this morning, including Providence Mayor David Cicilline (D) who will become the fourth openly gay Member of Congress when the House convenes in January.

However, as the Des Moines Register reports, all three Iowa Supreme Court justices who voted to approve gay marriage in the state were defeated.
