The invitation says:
Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu is a rising star in conservative politics. Chosen “Sheriff of the Year” by the National Sheriff’s Association in 2011, Babeu has gained prominence for his work securing the border and reforming law enforcement in Pinal County.
An Iraq War veteran, Babeu served for over 20 years in the Army National Guard. In his race for Arizona’s 4th Congressional District, Babeu has won the support of leading Republicans and was warmly welcomed at the Conservative Political Action Conference this year.
In short, Sheriff Babeu is a successful conservative Republican. He is also gay.
Sheriff Babeu follows in the tradition of many conservatives who have stood up in communities, town halls, and in Congress for what’s right for the American people. Following in the mold of the late Senator Barry Goldwater (R-AZ), Arizonans have long supported the best candidate for office, regardless of their sexual orientation, including Log Cabin member and longtime Congressman Jim Kolbe (R-AZ).
Simply by being who we are – unapologetically pro-gay and unapologetically conservative - Log Cabin Republicans like Sheriff Babeu are helping to secure the freedoms America stands for, and that’s something we can all be proud of.

I’m a conservative, and I’ve never understood the obsession with having to proclaim - or apologize for - one’s sexual preference. From what I know of Sheriff Babeau, he seems to be a good man, and an excellent law enforcer. I think he’d be an excellent congressman (especially if he can displace another Dem). Don’t know how one’s sexuality plays into that, but as long as people don’t keep trying to MAKE me care, it shouldn’t be a problem.
