Morning Sweep

Today is Super-Duper Mega Tuesday. But believe it or not, it's not the end of the race...

Hillary Clinton posted a message to LGBT Americans on OurChart.com.

Barack Obama mentioned gay people in his speech at the Meadowlands last night.

Outcome Buffalo endorses Hillary in today's primary election.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that gay and lesbian voters are divided when it comes to who they support in the race between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

San Francisco's mayor, the very pro-gay Gavin Newsom, claims that Barack Obama did not want to have a picture taken with him during the controversy surrounding Newsom's unilateral decision to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in 2003.

Floridians opposed to the anti-gay ballot initiative banning same-sex marriages (and even domestic partnerships) will be waging an all-out war on the amendment, which will be voted on in November.

An editorial in The New York Times supports the recent ruling by a New York State Appellate Court recognizing same-sex marriages legally performed out-of-state as fully legal in New York.

Two women in Rochester will be tried for assault as a hate crime against a lesbian couple, according to a decision yesterday by an appellate court.

Forbes Magazine's special report on the "best cities for couples" includes ample information on and relevant to LGBT people.

A bill will soon be introduced in the Maryland State Legislature that would, if passed, abolish all civil marriages and replace them with domestic partnerships, which would be available to both straight and gay couples.

Good As You has created a contest seeking the "gayest sketch" from its readers in anticipation of the season premier of Logo's Big Gay Sketch Show today.

Attorney General Michael Mukasey has reversed John Ashcroft's policies of denying the Department of Justice LGBT support group the same status as other employee groups.

Attorney General Michael Mukasey has already shown that despite your agreement with personal political beliefs, all employees should be valued in their work place. Great job.

And if you haven't yet, go vote!
