Not surprisingly, the Human Rights Campaign announced it is endorsing Christine Quinn for New York City Mayor. If elected, Quinn would be the first openly gay mayor, and the first woman to hold the position.

"New York needs Christine Quinn because she approaches every issue she cares about with passion and drive," said HRC President Chad Griffin, according to a press release. "Whether it's equality for all New Yorkers, great public schools or twenty-first century infrastructure, Chris is ready to fight for the city New Yorkers deserve."
