Gay Newspaper Snubs Haslam and McWherter, Embraces Cooper



To the relief of the candidates, the gay newspaper Out & About has declined to endorse anyone in the governor's race. We're waiting on both candidates to include the non-endorsement in TV ads. Only the Scene probably has less influence over election campaigns. Here's what Out & About had to say:

It’s hard to know whether to be more discouraged by Democrat Mike Wherter’s waffling on the adoption ban legislation our community routinely faces or Republican Bill Haslam’s fundraising efforts for Rep. Stacey “Don’t Say Gay” Campfield who is running for the State Senate. We’re not aware of any open, concerted effort to reach out to our community on the part of either candidate.

Out & About did endorse Congressman Jim Cooper and Greg Rabidoux, Rep. Marsha Blackburn's Democratic opponent, as well as a bunch of Democrats in the legislature. Go here for the full list.
