"He's a loose cannon, it appears as though this type of controversy is how he is trying to gain notoriety I almost think he is stoking the controversy," Stevenson said. "One of our primary focuses is on LGBT youth and it is extremely concerning to me to see a public official at this level running for the United States Senate to make comments that make them feel shameful, that makes them feel like an archaic stereotype that to be a real man or real woman you need to do something in lockstep with the 1950s. I think people forget that wasn't a good time for anybody that wasn't a straight white male."

The election is in October and the most recent poll in the race from Fairleigh Dickinson University shows Booker with a commanding lead of 28 points, 50 percent to Lonegan's 22 percent.
