Atlanta, GA – September 5, 2018 – Today, Georgia Equality, the state’s largest LGBT advocacy organization, released its endorsements for the upcoming November 2018 elections.
“In a year that could truly change the course of government in our state, we are proud to announce our latest endorsements for the upcoming general election. The 21 candidates we are endorsing today join the list of the 31 candidates endorsed in the primary who face opposition in the November election. We’re excited to support each of their candidacies, and know that if elected they will work hard to advance LGBTQ equality in Georgia.” said Georgia Equality executive director Jeff Graham.
In a period in which many people seeking elected office are supportive of the LGBT community, the Georgia Equality Board of Directors will issue an endorsement for a candidate who we feel is best placed to advance our policy agenda. The lack of an endorsement should not necessarily be viewed as a negative reflection of a particular candidate’s views on LGBT issues in general. In some instances the board did not make an endorsement if there were multiple candidates with evenly matched views on LGBT issues or in races where an incumbent was running unopposed.
