HOLLAND, Mich. (AP) -  Tuesday's election could put Holland back in the spotlight reguarding a new law protecting gays from discrimination.

Two incumbents on the Holland City Council are running for re-election. They opposed adding sexual orientation to Holland's anti-discrimination law in 2011. If they're defeated, the law has a good chance of passing.

Council member Brian Burch tells The Detroit News that the campaign season has been nasty. He says gay-rights supporters have tried to get him fired from his regular job.

City council candidate Don Martin says workers, the poor and minorities need the city's attention.
