LGBT groups join together to make endorsements for 2010 fall elections

Fair Wisconsin PAC and Human Rights League PAC are excited to announce our joint 2010 fall election endorsements. Fair Wisconsin PAC and Human Rights League PAC (HRL-PAC) are committed to advancing and achieving equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Wisconsinites through strategic electoral activity.

"We are excited to support so many pro-fairness candidates from across Wisconsin as we celebrate the one year anniversary of the passage of domestic partnership protections. These candidates have shown a commitment to advancing equality in Wisconsin and we look forward to working with them in the next legislative session," said Katie Belanger, Fair Wisconsin Executive Director.

HRL-PAC Co-Chairs, Dennis Kohler and Laurie Guilbault agree that maintaining and expanding pro-fairness majorities in the Wisconsin Assembly and Senate will allow us to continue taking important steps towards equality.

See the full list of candidates receiving a Fair Wisconsin PAC and HRL-PAC endorsement.

These endorsements follow Fair Wisconsin PAC and HRL-PAC's endorsement of gubernatorial candidate Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett this spring. We believe that Mayor Barrett will be the strong leader we need to continue advancing equality. He has shown a true commitment to equality with his vocal opposition to the discriminatory 2006 constitutional amendment banning marriage equality and civil unions in Wisconsin and with his opposition in Congress to the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy banning gays and lesbians from serving in the military. We are thrilled to call him a true partner in the quest for fairness.

We will unveil more pro-fairness endorsements as we get closer to the election, so if you don't see your legislator on the list, check back soon or send us an email at info@fairwisconsin.com.

In Fairness,
Katie Belanger

The Fair Wisconsin PAC seeks to support and elect pro-fairness candidates in both state and local election in order to continue taking important steps towards equality. For more information about Fair Wisconsin PAC, please visit us online at www.fairwisconsin.com/about/fwpac.
