Taking ons BP at America's Future Now

Posted June 11, 2010 | 11:55:33 (EST)

End Don't Ask, Don't Tell Now (FL-Sen)

Posted May 27, 2010 | 12:24:11 (EST)

This week, the White House made a big announcement: they would back a vote to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." In my opinion, it is a vote that is long overdue. My opponents, however, both oppose changing this intolerant policy. For far too long, the Pentagon's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"...

Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to speak to your community.

I'm traveling all across the state getting to know Floridians and telling them about my story. I can't talk to everyone personally, though, and since I'm running for U.S. Senate Americans outside of Florida may be interested in...

Posted January 19, 2010 | 15:21:38 (EST)
