This on 365 News:
Fort Lauderdale, Florida) Fort Lauderdale voters Tuesday elected Jack Seiler mayor, replacing Jim Naugle who for two decades had been blamed for divisive anti-gay rhetoric.
Naugle, who was prevented from running by term limits, backed Seiler. How much Naugle’s support helped Seiler is unknown.  A former state legislator, Seiler had a huge war chest and spent heavily.

Two gay candidates trailed despite newspaper ads by the Dolphin Democrats, the county’s LGBT Democratic Party club, which made sure the LGBT community knew Naugle had endorsed Seiler.

Last year, nearly one million gays and lesbians visited Broward County, spending more than one billion dollars.

HOT OFF THE PRESS: Just got this from Victory Fund:
Last night, Victory endorsee Coleman Prewitt advanced in his race to join the Fort Lauderdale City Commission. In one month, he will face a challenger in the runoff election -- a notorious social conservative who has received substantial support from outgoing mayor Jim Naugle. You may recall Naugle as the one who received widespread media coverage for his remarks stating that the city of Fort Lauderdale needed to buy single-occupancy toilets to reduce gay sex. He also opposed a plan to put a collection of gay and lesbian literature in a local public library. Coleman needs help funding his runoff campaign. Your support could help him win his race.

So they are prepared to support him it looks like.
