It looks like GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich isn't even trying for the moderate Republican vote in Tennessee. After all, he's chosen notoriously anti-gay state senator Stacey Campfield to co-chair his Tennessee campaign.

Not only did Campfield author the "Don't Say Gay" bill, which would ban talk of homosexuality in grades K through 8, but the senator was thrown out of a Knoxville restaurant on Sunday following some dangerous and inappropriate remarks made regarding AIDS on Sirius/XM OutQ's The Michelangelo Signorile Show. See yesterday's post to read Campfield's comments.
