    Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) co-sponsored six pro-LGBT proposals, making her the most pro-equality Republican. She is the sole GOP backer of the Respect for Marriage Act, which would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. Just five other Republicans backed at least one pro-LGBT bill.

    and Barney Frank isn't on there? wtf? he's like literally the #1 LGBT politician right now... Tammy Baldwin is only getting spotlight because luckily a seat in her State is up for grabs.

    There have been some mild tremors from Florida that Ileana Ros-Lehtinen may switch parties and become a Democrat after the 2012 elections. Right now, she is the ONLY Republican worth being elected this November.

    Plus, if she does sign a switch card it's a good bet she will be joining former Florida Governor Charlie Crist to do so. Nothing yet on Charlie becoming a Democrat and he is also weighing options running for Governor again in 2014 as a Democrat.

    Charlie would join a growing field of possible candidates ready and waiting to unseat resident asshat Rick Scott, who is hated by a vast majority of Floridians.
