John Scott, Ken Richards, Shaun Mastroianni and A.J. Kerouac are among the six gay candidates statewide who are running as Republicans for the state legislature.
Democrats make up 78.4 percent of LGBTQ elected officials nationwide compared to 2.9 percent for Republicans, according to a recent report from the Victory Institute, a political action committee that seeks to increase the number of LGBTQ elected officials.
