Join our live chat with House candidate Steve Pougnet, the married gay dad

It’s a busy afternoon. The Senate will be voting to end the filibuster of the Defense bill, which includes the DADT repeal language. We’re probably going to lose.

More than ever, it’s clear we need solid advocates in Congress. We need an openly gay, married dad: Steve Pougnet. Join OpenLeft, Bilerico, Pam’s House Blend, Good As You and AMERICAblog for a chat with Steve. He’ll be on our side. His campaign website is here. We’ve got an ActBlue page here.

In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire.

He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
