Gay conservative group GOProud is thrilled with the strong Republican showing on election night, issuing a statement saying the wins will improve the lives of gays and lesbians.
"New conservative leadership in Washington will usher in new opportunities to improve the lives of all Americans -- but especially gays and lesbians," said the statement from Christopher Barron (pictured), GOProud's chairman.
Executive director Jimmy LaSalvia echoed the sentiment.
"After four years of nothing but empty partisan rhetoric and a trail of broken promises, the Democratic majority in the House has been swept out. What do gay and lesbian Americans have to show for the tens of millions of dollars pumped into Democratic campaigns? Next to nothing. The record of Nancy Pelosi's Congress on improving the lives of average LGBT people in this country was a dismal one."
