This is why I don't put much stock in abstract polls that show X percentage of Americans would vote for a gay candidate. Sure, Scott Galvin has already won an election (he's on the city council and he's running for US Congress), but he'll have to overcome more than similarly-situated straight candidates. Like vandalism.

Galvin is a good candidate and a good man. It's a shame this always happens with openly LGBT candidates...
