A teacher who spoke out for gay students during a bullying debate in the state's largest school district says he's running for a state House seat.
    
Jefferson Fietek will challenge Rep. Mark Uglem, a Champlin Republican, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported.
    
Fietek advocated for gay students in 2010 when the Anoka-Hennepin school district struggled with several student suicides and federal lawsuits from students who said they were bullied over real or perceived sexual orientation.
