Onorato set out a plan for winning. There are more registered Democrats than Republicans in the state. If they turn out and vote, we win. Sounds simple, right? Simple but maybe not easy. The key now, is getting out the vote.

Come out and hear Joe Hoeffel, one of Pennsylvania’s more progressive politicians talk about why electing Dan is so critical!
LGBT Reception with Dan Onorato and Joe Hoeffel, October 3, 2010. Come out to hear why this election is so important for gay and lesbian issues in Pennsylvania.
Toward that end, Joe will be joining Dan here in Pittsburgh for a rally/ meet and greet on Wednesday October 6th, from 5-6:30 PM. More details to follow. Joe has been out on the road with Dan a few times now, and the message is one we can all agree on- that for the state to prosper, individual rights and equality matter for all of Pennsylvanians, including Gay, Lesbian, Bixsesual, and Trans persons.
Dan Onorato has the best chance to beat Tom Corbett in the Fall, and that is essential for any progressive issue important to Pennsylvanian. Jack Wagner is the least gay friendly of the four candidates and that makes him the worst choice of the democratic candidates.
In other cities, the Stonewall Democrats are a force within the Democratic party, as it should be here. For that to happen, it will need to be a group that welcomes and values the views of many, not just the views of those who see things exactly like some of their more vocal officers and members.
Joe Hoeffel’s postions are clearly very progressive and he is clearly a real friend the the LGBT community, but what has he actually done for LGBT rights? What can he list as his accomplishments? Where are the examples/accomplishments of his leadership on these issues?
So, do we want a governor who has a great voting record on progressive issues which shows he goes along with the progressive caucus, or do we want a person who can illustrate his leadership in economic as well as social issues?
