  •  My brother, also a Kossack, lives in Austin. (7+ / 0-)

    I live in Maine (we're from New England, my family). We have a very serious election coming up in Maine. We are poised to elect the first openly gay Governor in the nation, Congressman Mike Michaud (D, ME-02) to oust one of our last vestiges of the Tea Party, Paul LePage. This will mean--if we elect Mike--we'll get expanded Medicaid, which is truly important to our state.

    I am invested in our race here in Maine, but I thank you for your invitation. I love Texas--heck, I went to High School there--but I am very invested in the elections here. I am also invested in a state which already acknowledges my first class citizenship as a gay man and has marriage equality, and also has statutes protecting transgendered persons as well.

    I'll be working for Maine, but I will be helping Wendy Davis and other candidates in Texas when the checkbook allows. I believe in Texas, and I appreciate this diary. One day, when all is right, I may very well return to a state I dearly love.
