Interview with Fred Karger, gay Republican presidential contender

Fred Karger is an openly gay presidential candidateBY ZACK JENKINS

Fred Karger’s name didn’t make it into much of the mainstream media coverage surrounding the GOP nomination race, but the light-hearted Californian has spent the better part of two years and nearly $500,000 of his own money to run as the first openly gay presidential candidate from a major party.

Even after Mitt Romney garnered enough delegates to secure the GOP nomination following the May 29th Texas primary, Karger continued to campaign against the Massachusetts Governor into the Utah primary. His candidacy was never about winning the nomination, it was about giving a facelift to the Republican party and an example to younger people.
