LGBTQ U.S. House candidate Chris Pappas wins NH primary; increases unprecedented number of LGBTQ Congressional nominees

13 Victory Fund endorsed Congressional candidates on November ballot

WASHINGTON, DC - Openly LGBTQ candidate Chris Pappas won his primary and is on-track to becoming the first openly LGBTQ person elected to Congress from New Hampshire. Thirteen Victory Fund endorsed Congressional candidates will now be on the ballot in November - more than at any time in history. A win for Chris is critical to increasing the number of openly LGBTQ members of Congress, and is part of a Rainbow Wave of LGBTQ candidates running for high-level offices across the United States.

'Chris Pappas continues to smash long-standing political barriers for LGBTQ New Hampshirites - and his victory is emblematic of the pipeline of LGBTQ leaders who continue to rise through the ranks to better serve their constituents,' said Mayor Annise Parker, President & CEO of LGBTQ Victory Fund. 'Democratic primary voters are demanding authentic, values-driven leaders who prioritize policies over politics - and they found that leader in Chris. He was born and raised in the district, is a fierce advocate for fairness and equality, and will fight tirelessly to push forward policies that advance those principles. We need change in Washington, and a November victory for Chris is critical to securing a pro-equality majority in the next U.S. Congress.'

Two Victory Fund endorsed U.S. Senate candidates and 11 Victory Fund endorsed U.S. House candidates are on the ballot in November. Currently six openly LGBTQ people serve in the U.S. House, and U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin serves as the only openly LGBTQ Senator.

LGBTQ Victory Fund works to change the face and voice of America's politics and achieve equality for LGBTQ Americans by increasing the number of openly LGBTQ elected officials at all levels of government. victoryfund.org
