For me, Sestak brings all thge important viewpoints that I care about and in addition, he isn’t beholden to what the DNC thinks is best. He seems to be in the best position to take down Toomey, and no candidate comes close to be connected to the average person.
My hope would be for those who support Bernie to refine their message so that they are attacking the DNC politics as usual rather than attacking Hillary. And for those who support Clinton to see how the DNC makes Clinton appear to be a puppet of the rich and powerful.
In my opinion, LGBTQ voters would do better to turn their attention to State elections and Congressional races, because it is at these levels of government that we need to make great strides ahead.
This year’s EQPA primary endorsements represent a mix of legislators who have a history of supporting LGBT people and candidates who would add important new voices to the Pennsylvania State Assembly. Equality PA works each year to elect candidates who support full equality for LGBT people, and this year is no exception.
According to a new unscientific poll of Scruff users released last week, Clinton is the clear favorite of gay men who use the app.

And, this year’s general election is critically important for anyone who cares about progressive issues in general, and LGBTQ issues specifically. Because, we will be voting on members of the judiciary. Ted Martin of Equality PA puts it this way: The history of the state courts in Pennsylvania has not been favorable on[Read More…]
In the last general election, fewer than half of all eligible adults voted, and the majority of those who did get to the polls were conservatives. If every registered democrat turned out to vote, the conservatives wouldn’t be in charge everywhere!
The thing that will make the difference is voter turnout. If Democrats turn out in large numbers, we can send Toomey packing. But we need you voting on election day!
We must see progressive and fair thinking judges elected, because future victoroies for the LGBTQ community will require judicial decisions favorable to our equality. Plan now to vote in this and every election.
