San Diego would be the largest city to elect a gay Republican mayor should Councilman Carl DeMaio win next week, according to The New York Times. But there's one thing:
"Yet, perhaps no group has opposed Mr. DeMaio as loudly as this city’s sizable gay and lesbian population.
Angered by his reticence on gay issues and his acceptance of campaign donations from backers of Proposition 8, California’s 2008 ban on same-sex marriage, parts of the crowd booed Mr. DeMaio at a mayoral debate at the gay and lesbian community center here."
DeMaio, however, "said that it is only a small minority among gay voters, with ties to organized labor, that is so vocally opposed to him," according to the Times.
