Well, at least indirectly. From the Des Moines Register 2012 Caucus Blog:
Oskaloosa, Ia. – Newt Gingrich told a gay man and longtime resident of Oskaloosa here today that he should vote for President Obama.
“I asked him if he’s elected, how does he plan to engage gay Americans. How are we to support him? And he told me to support Obama,” said Scott Arnold, an associate professor of writing at William Penn University.”
I’m beginning to increasingly think that 2012 will be there year when Repulican’s loose the race baised primarily on their views about GLBTs.
