The pro-lesbian super PAC known as LPAC made its first 2012 endorsement on Tuesday morning, backing Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) in the state’s upcoming senate race.
As the only lesbian in Congress, Baldwin is a natural candidate for the group to support. She would become the first openly gay person in the Senate if elected in November.
In an email to supporters on Tuesday, LPAC’s chair and treasurer Sarah Schmidt cited the “important and historic nature” of Baldwin’s campaign.
“She is a champion of women’s rights, LGBT equality, and fights for poor and middle class Americans. And, she is under attack from anti-women, anti-choice, and anti-equality forces,” wrote Schmidt.
