Sen. Steve Gallardo of Arizona announces "I'm Gay, Its Okay"

  On Wednesday Sen. Steve Gallardo of Arizona announced that he is gay.  This comes after Gov. Jan Brewer has vetoed the Bill that was passed in Arizona that would allow businesses to discriminate against the LGBT Community due to religious beliefs.
  Sen. Gallardo tells reporters that “This bill allows businesses to say to me and my friends that we can’t be served in certain restaurants,” he told NBC News. “I don’t know why the Legislature was doing this. I should come out, I should say something, I should share the personal side of my life that I don’t really share.”
   Gallardo is a Democrat, who has served in the Arizona House 2003-2009, the moved to the Senate in 2011. He is planning to run for the U.S. House seat being vacated by retiring Rep. Ed Pastor this year.
  Gallardo states that his coming out is bigger than any race. He's not worried about how it will affect him in the race. He tells media "If I can make it easier for just one person, it's worth it."
