Congressman Mike Michaud

He is currently running for Maine Governor and there have been rumors and "whisper campaigns" by his opponents.  If elected, he will be the first Openly Gay Governor in the U.S.

Via Towleroad:

U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud, (D-ME) who is also running for governor of Maine, came out of the closet today in response to "whisper campaigns, insinuations and push-polls some of the people opposed to my candidacy have been using to raise questions about [his] personal life".Writes Michaud in a Portland Press Herald op-ed:
"They want people to question whether I am gay. Allow me to save them the trouble with a simple, honest answer: 'Yes I am. But why should it matter?'"
