I just had a pleasant conversation with Araceli Gonzalez, Deputy Coalitions Director for the Meg Whitman campaign, and asked if she’d be willing to come down to Los Angeles to talk to some of our readers about concerns gay conservatives have and how we could help her campaign should we find her the better of the two leading Republican candidates.
She agreed to come down and talk to us on Monday, April 12 at 7 PM, with the formal meeting starting at 8. Right now, we’re looking for a venue for this meeting, so please let me know if you’d like to attend.
Ms. Gonzalez has promised to look into Whitman’s stand on the state’s domestic partnership program. I told her that gay conservatives would be more likely to support her if the Republican candidate made clear that she would keep this landmark legislation in place.
