What are the odds that a gay man will be elected Dallas mayor next year?
“I’m not sure. I think there’s the best odds, but I don’t know who the other candidates are. If there’s a lot of other candidates, it probably won’t bode well. That’s an ongoing guess right now.”
“Slim to none. That’s just the way people are.”
“I doubt it will happen. I just don’t think there’s enough people that will vote for a gay mayor. In the past I’ve seen our gay population not come out very much to vote.”
“I think it’s very likely. I think the running candidate is a good candidate for the position and the job. I think he’s got a good chance.”
“I think, the way things are going right now, there’s a good 50 percent chance. There are so many gay people doing good stuff. Soon there will be one, and why not? That’s hot. I love it.”
