Congrats, Et Cetera

Openly gay entrepenur and philanthropist Jared Polis has won his hard fought battle to be the Democratic cantidate for Congress from Colorado's 2nd District. Polis, who has come on the show, was largely bypassed by big gay donors (and the Human Rights Campaign, which did not endorse him) and had to put up his own money to finance his primary battle. As a Democrat, Polis is highly favored to win the seat. If elected he'd be the third openly gay member of Congress.
