Following a presentation I gave Monday night to the Broward Log Cabin Republicans Club, GOP congressional candidate Osvaldo "Ozzie" F. deFaria Jr. introduced himself to members meeting at Atlantic Properties in Wilton Manors.
DeFaria, who describes himself as a "social conservative," got into a spirited debate with members about whether gays should be allowed to openly serve in the military. He hopes to win the GOP primary next summer and then challenge incumbent Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the fall.
