Georgia Equality, the state's largest LGBT political group, today announced its slate of endorsements for the July 31 primary election. Early voting is already underway and runs through July 27.
Georgia Equality's picks include three openly gay incumbent state lawmakers: Reps. Karla Drenner, Simone Bell and Keisha Waites, and one openly gay candidate, Ken Britt.
Georgia Equality chose not to endorse in the hotly contested race involving the state legislature's fourth openly gay member, Rep. Rashad Taylor, who thanks to Republican-controlled redistricting is pitted for reelection against fellow Democrat Rep. Pat Gardner, a longtime LGBT rights ally.
Georgia Equality also chose to endorse incumbent gay rights ally Rep. Margaret Kaiser over openly gay challenger William Phelps in that Democratic primary race.
The LGBT political group did not issue primary endorsements in two other state legislative races that include openly gay challengers: House District 101, where Timothy Swiney faces Republic incumbent Valerie Clark, and the open Senate District 47 seat, where gay Democrat Tim Riley will face three Republican challengers.
Georgia Equality has not considered those races for endorsements yet because Swiney and Riley do not face opponents in the primary, said GE Executive Director Jeff Graham.
