Despite the well, unfortunate communications situation with the Cal Cunningham campaign last week, I've continued to be in touch with others in the campaign to get him to participate in a liveblog.
Naturally, because of the time lost earlier due to the lack of response from the campaign the liveblog will occur after my endorsement tomorrow. It will be on Sunday, April 25 at 7PM. The reason for this extraordinary measure is that if Cal were to prevail in the primary, it's essential that he be on the record and openly engage Blend readers about his positions on LGBT issues, and willing to explain the difficulties that made his campaign stumble in addressing the matter earlier. That's what LGBT North Carolinians -- and those around the country -- need to know.
I do believe that good politicians can learn from mistakes -- it was clearly a tough message for his campaign to swallow that many in our community are no longer willing to be engaged in the closet.
