GOP Lawmaker Seeks to Stop Support for Gay Candidates

Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA) "is causing friction with some of his colleagues by pushing the House GOP campaign arm to deny support for some of the party's gay congressional candidates," Politico reports.

"Forbes has waged a lengthy crusade to convince his colleagues and the National Republican Congressional Committee brass they shouldn't back some gay candidates. His efforts on Capitol Hill were described... by more than a half-dozen sources with direct knowledge of the talks."
