Will Annise Parker make Houston the country's largest city with an LGBT Mayor?

Decision Day is rapidly approaching in Houston, Texas. In just over two weeks, December 12th, voters in Houston have the chance to make history by electing Annise Parker to be their next mayor. If elected, Houston would become the largest city with an openly gay or lesbian mayor.

Although a victory by Annise would be historic and a victory for the LGBT community at large, a win would also be a big victory for the citizens of Houston. Annise is not new to this city; she has been an elected official for years and she is currently the city's Comptroller.

She has received the enthusiastic endorsement of the Houston Chronicle, the city's largest newspaper, and a recent poll shows Annise Parker with a tiny edge:

Annise Parker 37%
Gene Locke 34%
Margin of Error +/- 4.4%
