Gay Republicans Endorse Bush

From Associated Press

The Log Cabin Republicans, the GOP’s largest gay group, endorsed George W. Bush for president Friday, saying that the Texas governor has reached out to gay and lesbian members of his party.

Chairman Robert Stears said the GOP convention “was a clear sign to all of us that a new Republican Party is emerging.”

The endorsement culminates a sometimes stormy relationship between Bush and the group, which ran ads critical of Bush for saying last November that he was unlikely to meet with its leaders.
