Out Candidates for Elected Office Grow


The number of openly LGBT candidates endorsed by the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund for elected office at the local, state, and federal levels has reached 76 and continues to grow, which suggests the organization could be on track to endorse a record number of candidates in 2010.

According to a news release from the Victory Fund, "Among the endorsees are five candidates for the U.S. Congress, two for statewide office, and 35 state legislative candidates.

"Current endorsees include: Nickie Antonio, a Democrat running for the Ohio State House; David Cicilline, a Democrat running for Congress from Rhode Island; Dave Coulter, a Democrat running for the Michigan State Senate; Lucia Guzman, a Democrat running for the Colorado State Senate; and Richard Tisei, a Republican running for lieutenant governor of Massachusetts."
