Craig Lowe Certified as Winner in Gainesville, FL Mayoral Race


Openly gay candidate Craig Lowe, who beat his opponent Don Marsh in the Gainesville, Florida mayoral race by a margin of 35 votes despite being the target of vicious anti-gay attacks, picked up an additional seven votes in the recount for a margin of 42 and was certified the winner this afternoon, Towleroad has learned.

    @Lucas :: And in both of your examples – I’d bet dollars to donuts without the *college* in these towns – this would not be so. :>)

    Education is Key to Acceptance.

    As in all states, unless students re-register to vote IN Florida, going to college IN Florida means nothing to the ballot box. And non-event/off-year elections tend to bring out even fewer voters than a national election.

    I’d say that this guy won BECAUSE of the nasty adverts and criticism leveled on him by Republican/TeaBaggers.

    BTW: This happening in conservative Florida does not bode well for TeaBaggers nation-wide: An OUT GAY MAN beat a Republican/TeaBagger.

    Which leads me to conclude: BWHAHAHAHAHAH!
