Obama Reaches Out to Gays
Senator Obama is conspicuously reaching out to gay voters in the form of a targeted ad buy in gay publications in Ohio and Texas, including tomorrow's Dallas Voice, and in an "open letter to the LGBT Community." The letter says, in part,
"Americans are yearning for leadership that can empower us to reach for what we know is possible. I believe that we can achieve the goal of full equality for the millions of LGBT people in this country."
Towleroad has published the full text of the letter and you can read it here.
After Hillary got 60% of the gay vote in California, I said that Obama needed to do some serious fence-mending with us to demonstrate that he feels we are a constituency worth fighting for. It looks like he's doing it.
