First Gay Winner of the Night

First Gay Winner of the Night


The first openly gay candidate to win an election Tuesday is Sen. Benjamin Cruz of Guam.

Cruz, a Democrat and the vice speaker of the Guam senate, was the author of Guam's contested civil union bill in 2009. He was formerly the chief justice of the Guam supreme court.

Cruz is not a Victory Fund candidate, but the group tweeted his victory early Wednesday morning Guam time (Guam is 14 hours ahead of Washington, D.C.).
