Gay Pride: Plattsburgh Mayor Speaks Out on Marriage & GOP

Listen to this story
There are more openly lesbian and gay elected officials now than in any time in history. And contrary to popular belief, they're not all Democrats. Dan Stewart has been the mayor of Plattsburgh, since 2000. Stewart is a Republican, but in recent months he's spoken out against the party's national policies and President Bush's call for a Constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. Stewart spoke last weekend at the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists convention in New York City. He was on a panel of gay and lesbian politicians. Stewart is up for re-election this fall in Plattsburgh. He spoke with Todd Moe during the convention about same-sex marriage, the Republican party and his re-election campaign.
