The LGBTQ Democrats of Montgomery County are proud to announce their endorsed 2018 Democratic primary candidates for the Maryland State Senate and House of Delegates.
“Our leaders in Annapolis enabled Maryland to become the first state to approve marriage equality by referendum. We appreciate the tremendous support provided by the incumbents and are excited by the energy exhibited by the field of new candidates,” said Michael Knaapen, president of the LGBTQ Democrats.
“The endorsement process focused on multiple factors, including a candidate’s history of support for the LGBTQ community and its causes, intended future support, knowledge of LGBTQ challenges, clarity of response, honesty, and intent for engagement of the LGBTQ community. While status as a member of the LGBTQ community, or as a member of the LGBTQ Democrats of Montgomery County, is a factor in determining endorsements, it was not used as the sole deciding factor in any endorsement,” Knaapen said.
The LGBTQ Democrats of Montgomery County will activate its members and supporters to help the endorsed candidates win in the June primary.
