Who's gay-friendlier?

The battle between Democratic presidential contenders Al Gore and Bill Bradley for the gay vote heated up further January 27, when the vice president's campaign issued a press release stating that "top gay and lesbian leaders" in New York "questioned Sen. Bill Bradley's commitment to their community." The chief allegation in the release: Bradley has only five openly gay delegates in New York, which holds its primary March 7, while Gore has 11. However, Bradley's campaign representatives quickly pointed out that their candidate has seven gay delegates and accused Gore's staff of circulating "lies and distortions" about Bradley's "outstanding record."
