DELAWARE STONEWALL ENDORSES ADDITIONAL CANDIDATES
Delaware Stonewall PAC, the state’s lone political organization dedicated to advocate and provide funding on behalf of the LGBT community to political candidates who have through actions or commitment supported issues of importance to the LGBT community, is proud to announce its latest series of endorsements.
For US Senate the PAC endorses Tom Carper, who has been supportive of our community for many years. Twenty years ago, while Governor, Senator Carper issued an Executive Order prohibiting discrimination in State government based on sexual orientation. He was at our very first Statewide event and has been with us since. We believe in having an experienced Senator in the US Senate who will fight to make sure all the gains made nationally will not be diminished by this very toxic Congress.
We also proudly endorse our lone Congressional Representative Lisa Blunt Rochester who has shown during her first term that she will stand tall for us.
For Delaware House of Representative seat Five we endorse Ajawavi Ajavon who in response to our questionnaire has given us much insight into her strong convictions in support of the LGBT community, and in the 3rd District, we are proud to endorse a strong progressive who has consistently supported us, Sherry Dorsey Walker.
In Sussex County, Paulette Rappa, who in her previous run has shown her support, gained our endorsement in an effort to break the hold of Republican men who currently control the County Council. She is running in District 4.
Some of these candidates are expected to face a primary challenge on Thursday, September 6. The General Election is Tuesday, November 6.
