Dan Baer U.S. Senate Bid

By Charlotte Robinson, July 12, 2019
The LGBTQ Victory Fund has endorsed Dan Baer for U.S. Senate who is running in Colorado. Baer would become the first openly gay man elected to the U.S. Senate & just the third openly LGBTQ person to serve in the chamber. The endorsement comes a week after his campaign announced a record-breaking $1.35 million fundraising haul in the second quarter which is the largest ever initial fundraising report for an openly LGBTQ Congressional candidate. Victory Fund expects an unprecedented number of LGBTQ Congressional candidates to run in 2020. Mayor Annise Parker, President & CEO of LGBTQ Victory Fund stated, “Coloradans led the country by electing America’s first openly gay governor in 2018 & in 2020 they will make history again in sending the first out gay man to the U.S. Senate. Never before has an openly LGBTQ Congressional candidate reported such strong initial fundraising numbers – an important indicator, given LGBTQ candidates for high-level office are often underestimated early in their campaigns. But Dan’s authentic & values-driven approach to politics is resonating with voters & there is no better candidate to take on anti-LGBTQ incumbent Cory Gardner than a person so deeply affected by the discriminatory positions Gardner promotes.” Baer is Victory Fund’s second federal endorsement for the 2020 election cycle, having endorsed Mayor Pete Buttigieg for President of the United States on June 28th. In 2018 Victory Fund endorsees Tammy Baldwin & Kyrsten Sinema who both won their U.S. Senate seats in Wisconsin & Arizona. They are the only two openly LGBTQ people to ever serve in the U.S. Senate.
