Georgia Equality, the state’s largest LGBT advocacy organization, tried to put a positive spin on what is mostly a depressing post-Election Day for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender voters in the state.
With Nathan Deal, who ran the most anti-gay primary campaign known in the state’s history, headed to the governor’s mansion, there’s not much to be happy about.
But Georgia Equality wants to stress there was some good news and good fair-minded candidates that they endorsed who either were elected or re-elected to their seats.
In a press release, Georgia Equality says of its 17 endorsed candidates, 10 won, five lost and two are in a runoff.
Democrat Stacy Evans — House District 40 (Marietta)
Also winning in an unopposed race were lesbians Democrats State Rep. Simone Bell of District 58 and state Rep. Karla Drenner of Avondale Estates.
Joan Garner is also the first openly gay or lesbian candidate to be elected to a county commission post in Georgia, according to Georgia Equality.
Chris McFadden - State Court of Appeals
Those endorsed by Georgia Equality but lost are:
Maryline Blackburn for House District 34
