Election Day Endorsements

 

EQIL PAC Endorsements 2014

Governor Pat Quinn’s leading role in achieving first civil unions and then marriages for same-sex couples, his open and inclusive administration, and his strong support for policies that protect LGBT students from bullying and LGBT workers from discrimination make Governor Quinn the choice of the Equality Illinois Political Action Committee, the only statewide PAC focused on LGBT issues.

In other statewide races, Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Secretary of State Jesse White–two Democrats–and Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka–a Republican–were there for us during the crucial fight for the freedom to marry in Illinois. And with their votes in the legislature, Rep. Tom Cross, a Republican, and Sen. Mike Frerichs, a Democrat, were critical in the marriage bill’s narrow victory.

As with the statewide endorsements, the choices for the General Assembly reflect the commitment of Equality Illinois PAC to recognize candidates from both sides of the aisle for their support of LGBT issues.
