D.C. Elects First Openly Gay Republican Party Leaders
On Tuesday, Republicans in the District of Columbia elected two openly gay party members to the posts of national committeeman and committeewoman.
Robert “Bob” Kabel and Jill Homan will officially take their positions in September at the conclusion of the 2012 Republican Convention. When they do, the District will be the only jurisdiction with two openly gay GOP committee members.
For the past seven years the District has been home to the only openly gay member of the RNC. Since 2005, Kabel has been serving as the Chairman of the D.C. GOP. His tenure as chair is set to expire in January 2013.
