Gays In Congress

Gays In Congress

This combination of 2009-2012 file photos shows, top row from left; Wisconsin Democratic Senate candidate, Rep. Tammy Baldwin; Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I. New York Democratic Rep. candidate Sean Patrick Maloney; bottom row from left; Republican U.S. House candidate Richard Tisei of Massachussets; former Arizona state Sen. Kyrsten Sinema and Congressional candidate Mark Takano of California. Of the four openly gay members of Congress, the two longest-serving stalwarts are vacating their seats. Instead of fretting, their activist admirers are excited about a record number of gays vying in 2012 to win seats in the next Congress - and to make history in the process. (AP Photo)
