It was a tight race on the Republican side between the former host of The Apprentice and Ted Cruz, but in the end, Ted trumped Donald, walking away victorious with 27.7% of the votes.

And for the Democratic party, it was neck-and-neck between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, down to the last second, but ultimately Miz Clinton came out on top with 49.9%, beating her opponent by only a fraction of a percent!

This is a huge deal, because in the past the Iowa caucus has predicted the Democratic presidential nominee 43% of the time, and the Republican choice 50% of the time!

But, where did the other candidates fall in the count? Ch-ch-check out the full results (below)!

You Can Do It, Maryland! Legalize Same-Sex Marriage!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikLGBT

We're so happy to hear that this could become a reality soon!

Proponents of the legalization of same-sex marriage in Maryland believe that they have enough support to make it happen during the upcoming legislative session.

If they can in fact gain the support, Maryland's Democratic governor Martin O'Malley has "publicly stated that he would sign a marriage bill into law." Hooray!

Here's what openly gay Democratic state Delegate Heather Mizeur had to say about it:

"We've been marching in this direction for a while now. It just took a little while to get us there, but we're seizing the moment. It's our time."

More from Morgan Meneses-Sheets, executive director of Maryland's largest LGBT group Equality Maryland:

"We've taken those small steps forward. It's time to live with the promise that is marriage equality. No other institution provides the legal protections."

"We're going to keep moving this issue forward until we all have marriage equality."

Right on, Morgan!

Not EVERYBODY is on board yet, though. Sen. Allan Kittleman wants gay couples to be granted all the rights given to married couples, but without the "stigma of religion."

Here's what he had to say on the subject:

"Civil unions would grant the same rights as marriage, but just shift the role of something that is viewed as a religious institution to something more secular. I just really believe, it is more the libertarian in me, that government needs to be out of something that is religious. The disagreement we have in society on gay marriage is from the religious aspects of it."

Boo, Sen. Kittleman! Don't cop out with civil unions!

We want to see same-sex marriage legalized in Maryland! It would be SUCH a wonderful, positive step in the right direction!

Thoughts???
