Hottie commissioner Sam Adams was elected mayor of Portland on Tuesday, in an easy victory over businessman Sho Dozono.
Adams' win makes him the first openly gay mayor of a major U.S. city.
"I'm running not to be a gay mayor, but a great mayor," he said after delivering his victory speech. "But I'm very cognizant, very aware that I'm the first openly gay mayor of a major American city. That's a real honor."
I am so proud of Sam, so proud of Portland!
I have family who is gay, family I love. Somewhere over the rainbow.... is Portland. Quilt market, Primary election, and now Sam's victory.... its been a great week for Portland.
