LAS VEGAS — Silver State Equality, Nevada’s statewide LGBTQ civil rights organization, announced the endorsements of U.S. Representatives Susie Lee, Steven Horsford and Dina Titus for reelection on Thursday. This is the first slate of endorsements the group has released since publicly launching in August 2019. Lee and Horsford are in swing districts that both Democrats and Republicans plan to target in 2020, and Silver State Equality will prioritize their races.
Silver State Equality State Director André Wade released the following statement:
“LGBTQ Nevadans are lucky to have three extraordinary representatives in the U.S. House, who fight for full, lived equality every single day. We need strong pro-equality champions like Susie Lee, Steven Horsford and Dina Titus defending our values, lowering the costs of healthcare and fighting for a world that is healthy, just and fully equal for all LGBTQ people. With these endorsements, our hope is that LGBTQ Nevadans and our allies know who they can trust to fight for them in Washington.”
Silver State Equality extends endorsements to candidates who have earned a 100 percent pro-equality rating for their votes on the organization’s scored legislation and who meet Silver State Equality’s code of ethics, standards of conduct and other applicable endorsement criteria. Silver State Equality’s Endorsement Process and Guidelines are available online at silverstateequality.org/elections. Silver State Equality’s 2019 federal legislative scorecard is available here.
