LPAC ENDORSES GINA ORTIZ JONES
U.S. CONGRESS IN TEXAS DISTRICT 23

Washington, DC (November 17, 2017) — LPAC, the country’s first and only lesbian political action committee, today announces its endorsement of Gina Ortiz Jones (D), who is running for a seat in the U.S. Congress in Texas District 23.

“LPAC is thrilled to endorse Gina Ortiz Jones and urges all our supporters to invest in this important and competitive race,” said Urvashi Vaid, Interim Executive director of LPAC. “Jones represents the fresh leadership that this country leads and is challenging a two-term incumbent who has consistently opposed the rights and concerns of diverse, communities,” continued Vaid.

“Representation matters now more than ever, as this administration works to erase the hard-fought civil rights wins of the LGBTQ community,” said Gina Ortiz Jones. “We will not be unseen, and I will fight everyday in Congress to ensure my community is treated with the respect and dignity that every American deserves. I’m honored to receive LPAC’s endorsement.”

“We support Jones’ priorities, which include healthcare and economic justice,” continued Vaid, “Jones will be a strong advocate for women, LGBTQ people, immigrants, and will provide the strong, balanced and effective leadership that Texas and our country needs.”
