69:50 Recently, a candidate for office in the state of Texas was defeated in the primaries after being 'outed' as a crossdresser. In Arizona, house candidate Amanda Simpson employed a different, and smarter, strategy. Thanks to her forthright approach, she is now in hot competition - with widespread support - for her state seat. A veteran of GLBT activism, Amanda reveals her (so far) winning strategy that has made her, in the eyes of many of her constituents, the leading candidate for the job she seeks.
