Fred Karger (left), the Californians Against Hate activist behind the Manchester Hyatt boycott and other gay rights campaigns, is exploring a possible run for president in the Republican Party, LGBT POV's Karen Ocamb reported Tuesday.
Karger has set out on a five-state campaign swing, kicking things off Thursday in New Hampshire with a meet-and-greet in Keen and, later, speaking at a pride event at Dartmouth.
The activist announced his possible presidential bid on the same day he issued a challenge to possible GOP presidential competitor, Mike Huckabee, calling the talk show host a "21st century George Wallace."
Karger attacked Huckabee for his recent comments on gay Americans. When asked for his opinion on gay parents, Huckabee, in an April 9 interview with The Perspective, the news magazine of The College New Jersey, responded: "Children are not puppies -- this is not a time to see if we can experiment and find out, how does this work?"
