Nation’s Lesbian Super PAC Statement on Announcement of Tim Kaine As the Vice Presidential Running Mate to Hillary Clinton
LPAC applauds the experience and expertise of Tim Kaine as a strong complement to the historic candidacy of Secretary Hillary Clinton

(Washington D.C., July 23, 2016)— LPAC Executive Director, Beth Shipp, issued the following statement in response to today’s announcement:

“With the addition of Tim Kaine as the vice presidential nominee supporting the historic candidacy of Secretary Hillary Clinton, LPAC can be confident that we have the strength and fortitude to defeat the Republican nominee in November. And, as we begin the Democratic National Committee Convention, this announcement provides exciting momentum on which to build. In stark contrast to last week’s Republican convention, the progressive champions gathering in Philadelphia next week, led by Hillary Clinton as the first ever woman from a major political party to become a Presidential candidate, are poised to highlight equality, diversity, social justice – the very values LPAC is built upon and which are so important to our community and our country.”

LPAC builds the political power of lesbians and queer women by electing candidates who champion LGBTQ rights, women’s equality, and social justice. Founded in 2012 by experienced leaders in feminist, LGBTQ and social justice movements, LPAC has raised $2.1 million dollars from more than 1,500 donors across 48 states and the District of Columbia. LPAC has invested $900,000 directly in more than 40 races and independent expenditure campaigns throughout the country, and used the balance of its funds to organize, convene, network and build the political power of LGBTQ women.
