Hosting Live Election Coverage Tonight

Happy Election Day all! Finally here, and not a moment too soon. We'll be covering it all. The terrific political strategist Joe Sudbay will be guest-hosting the show today, interviewing activists, pundits, commentators and others, and taking your calls from coast to coast as you're going to and from the voting booth.

Then, tonight I'l l be hosting live election coverage from 8-midnight (or beyond if need be!) and Joe and others will be joining me. We'll go to all the states where gay marriage is on the ballot and check in with activists -- Maine, Maryland,  Minnesota and Washington -- and we'll be checking in at Obama campaign headquarters in Chicago with former NFL player and Obama campaign LGBT surrogate Wade Davis.

We'll be covering all the big races as well, with a record number of LGB candidates running for Congress, and the possibility of election the first openly gay or lesbian U.S. Senator, Tammy Baldwin. Here's the press release on all of SirusXM's coverage, which includes the blurb about OutQ:
