U.S. Senate Wins Pro-Equality Majority

By Charlotte Robinson, November 13, 2022

What a pleasure after months of ranting loud mouth obnoxious MAGA extremist candidates the Dems have delivered a pro-equality majority who will be returning to the U.S. Senate in 2023. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada was re-elected as well as Senator Mark Kelly of Arizona last night resulting in a pro-equality majority. The runoff race in Georgia between incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock & Herschel Walker on December 6th in Georgia will either expand the majority or have no impact on control of the Senate with Vice President Kamala Harris stepping in to break any ties. Sarah Kate Ellis, President & CEO of GLAAD stated, “With the results of House control still undetermined, LGBTQ people & other marginalized communities can rest a little easier knowing that a pro-equality majority is projected to return to the U.S. Senate. This is especially critical for the next 2 years in order to ensure that pro-equality judicial nominees continue to be confirmed along with basic protections being passed for LGBTQ people, abortion rights & voting rights. It’s clear that Americans are ready to turn the page on extremism & candidates who campaign on taking rights away. We must thank young people — large numbers of whom are LGBTQ — women & voters of color for defying the odds of history.” So Far in the Biden administration the Senate has confirmed a record number of federal judges with the vast majority 76% are women & included are the first out lesbians appointed & confirmed to the federal bench & the first Black woman to the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson. So we now have 2 years to set the course for a progressive narrative that reflects who “We The People” actually are. Let's get this done.
