LPAC Backing August Candidates

By Charlotte Robinson, July 11, 2018
LPAC has announced several new endorsements on the heels of several successful primary campaigns by previously endorsed candidates. As August primaries approach & the critical midterm elections loom these additional endorsements paired with a renewed effort focused on key races will be the focus of LPAC’s efforts in the coming months. Stephanie Sandberg, LPAC’s Executive Director stated, “We are encouraged by the recent successes of our endorsed candidates but there is so much more work to do between now & November, with the August primaries first & foremost. It is time to raise more money, get out the vote & engage local communities in these historic elections. With the recent resignation of Justice Kennedy & continued attacks on LGBTQ rights, reproductive rights & social justice there is more at stake than ever.” The newly endorsed candidates with August primaries include: Donna Shalala, US Rep. FL-27: Donna Shalala is running for US Congress for FL District 27 to replace retiring Rep. Ros-Lehtinen. Jamie McLeod-Skinner, US Rep. OR-2:McLeod-Skinner is running for US Congress for OR District 2 after a victory in her May 15th primary. Stacey Abrams, Georgia Governor: Abrams is running for Governor of Georgia after a victory in her May 22nd primary. Lupe Valdez, Texas Governor: Valdez is running for Governor of Texas after a victory in her May 22nd primary win and has already made history in her career as a Latina out lesbian. Nickie Antonio, OH State Senate: Antonio is running for Ohio State Senate in District 23 after a victory in her May 8th primary & Mary Washington, MD State Senate (apparent winner): Washington is running for Maryland State Senate in District 43, part of Baltimore County, after a victory in her June 26th primary.
