Miami Beach this week elected an openly gay Democratic legislator, a first for Florida.

Reports Miami New Times:

That changed [Tuesday night] as voters in Florida 113th House district, which encompasses parts of Miami Beach and Miami, elected David Richardson, an openly gay CPA. Though, when all is said and done Richardson may not even be the only openly gay politician headed to Tallahassee next year.
