Democrats Challenge PA Elected Officials: Please Vote for Them!

Philadelphia Gay News has a really great post with interviews on a number of PA democrats challenging republicans. They reached out to the GOP candidates, but none were willing to be interviewed. In my pinion, the current GOP strategy is to keep a low profile around LGBTQ issues in the hopes that no one notices them. but underneath it all, the GOP remains highly opposed to any progress by LGBTQ persons.

Election 2014: The US Senate and LGBTQ Rights

Marriage in and of itself, may not be the stumbling block to full equality. Rather, nondiscrimination protections will be the place where gay, lesbian, bi, trans, and queer persons remain treated as second class citizens.

Is Steel City Stonewall Dems RIP?

Is Steel City Stonewall Dems RIP?

Let’s hope that any vacation from active work for Steel City Stonewall Democrats will end soon, as the group can be an essential player in helping to grow the voice of LGBTQ and allied voters here in Western PA. Or, let’s hope that the group gets new leadership who will focus on doing whatever it takes to not be an “account suspended” type of presence.

Christie and the GOP “strategy” regarding Marriage Equality.

Christie and the GOP “strategy” regarding Marriage Equality.

This means that the GOP knows it can’t win when it comes to marriage equality, but they are going to use rhetoric about “not giving up the fight” in an effort to keep these folks strongly behind the GOP. In other words, appease the base even though you know it is all over.

Clinton’s Gay Marriage Interview: The battle is far from over.

Will Allyson Schwartz turn off her voters with attack ads?

Will Allyson Schwartz turn off her voters with attack ads?

Can I continue to support Allyson Schwartz in the PA Governor race? I’m not sure. I’ve wanted to support her from the very beginning, but her recent attack ads were possibly the last straw for me. Attack ads don’t increase voter turnout nor do they help undecideds pick you as their candidate. If anything the role of attack ads is to erode the possibility that undecideds don’t vote for whomever you are attacking. They  are about[Read More…]
