Is Annise Parker a Republican?

Besides being the first openly gay mayor to lead a major US city, she is the first Rice grad to be elected to the post of mayor of Houston.
In complete but unofficial returns, Parker coasted to a comfortable victory with 52.8 percent of the vote to 47.2 percent for Locke. Turnout was 16.5 percent.
Is Annise a Republican or a democrat?

Yes Annise Parker is a Republican.
Her victory capped an unorthodox election season that lacked a strong conservative mayoral contender and saw her coalition of inside-the-loop Democrats and moderate conservatives, backed by an army of ardent volunteers, win the day over Locke, a former civil rights activist who attempted to unite African-American voters and Republicans.

I'm glad Annise won, but very surprised considering Houston's large african american population. African americans represent the single largest per capita racial group oppossed to gay rights.
