Debate watch party with Cleveland's Stonewall Democrats

The Gotta Vote bus tour is in Cleveland tonight, where we're watching the debate with the Cleveland Stonewall Democrats.

Since he took office, President Obama has been an advocate of LGBT Americans, repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," ordering the Justice Department to no longer enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, and becoming the first sitting president to support marriage equality.

Dan, who's LGBT, says that the choice in this election is so obvious that it's really not even a choice: "You have a candidate who is about as close to 100 percent behind the LGBT community as we've ever had, and a candidate who's behind us zero percent," he says. "Over the last two years, the progress that's been made when it comes to the repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' and the executive orders he's put into place, really shows President Obama is on our side, and he's on the right side of history."
