Equality Maryland Announces Second Round of Endorsements

Today Equality Maryland (EQMD) announced its second set of endorsements for the 2014 election cycle. The list includes 21 incumbent state legislators who voted for The Civil Marriage Protections Act and completed candidate questionnaires. All support Equality Maryland’s top legislative priority – The Fairness for All Marylanders Act, which expands current law to include anti-discrimination provisions for transgender Marylanders. All are Democrats.

PAC Chair, Tim Williams, commented, “Equality Maryland’s PAC is proud to endorse an additional 21 incumbents who have stood with Equality Maryland and our work for LGBT equality during their tenure on the General Assembly. We will work hard to ensure they are re-elected.”

In the first round of endorsements, EQMD endorsed Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman for the Gubernatorial race along with 36 incumbent state legislators. There will be at least one more round of endorsements from the Equality Maryland PAC in the coming months.

“We are proud to put our support behind the Brown/Ulman ticket for Governor and Lieutenant Governor,” says Carrie Evans, EQMD Executive Director. “After meeting with the three declared Democratic candidates, we believe that Anthony Brown and Ken Ulman will be the most effective Governor and Lieutenant Governor for Equality Maryland’s issues and for the citizens of Maryland.
