Florida LGBTQ+ Democrats Endorse Joe Biden
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 3, 2020
DELRAY BEACH, FL – Today the Florida LGBTQ+ Democratic Caucus is announcing its next endorsement for the 2020 election. In March, a survey of LGBTQ+ Democratic activists at the Caucus’ 2020 Winter Conference found 84% support for Joe Biden. And after a comprehensive review process, the Caucus membership voted to endorse Joe Biden for President of the United States.
Florida LGBTQ+ Democratic Caucus President Stephen Gaskill issued the following statement on the Caucus’ endorsement:
“Joe Biden will be the most pro-LGBTQ+ President in history. In the middle of a global pandemic, with historic levels of unemployment, and as our country tries to repair centuries of institutional and systemic racism, Joe Biden is the compassionate and experienced leader we need to heal and pull through these crises.
“President Trump and his Administration have repeatedly attacked the rights of LGBTQ+ Americans. Our community can’t afford four more years of taking steps backward in our fight for full equality. Our Caucus is excited to endorse Joe Biden because he knows that equality for every American is a fundamental principle of our country.”
Susan McGrath, Campaign Director of the Florida LGBTQ+ Democratic Caucus, noted the impact on legislative goals:
“With so much at stake for our most vulnerable, including the LGBTQ+ community, we must work tirelessly to elect Joe Biden. To pass the Equality Act and ensure the right to employment, housing, and public accommodations regardless of who you are or who you love, we need Joe Biden in the White House. To restore the soul of our country and ensure equality for every American, we need Joe Biden in the White House. LGBTQ+ Democrats in Florida are ready to do all we can to elect him.”
