144 out LGBTQ candidates won elected office so far in 2019, most ever in an odd-numbered election year

 

WASHINGTON, DC(November 6, 2019) - More openly LGBTQ candidates won elected office in 2019 than in any other odd-numbered election year in United States history. As of November 6, at 1:30 p.m. ET, a total of 144 openly LGBTQ candidates won election out of the 382 known openly LGBTQ candidates who ran throughout the year. Last night alone, 99 of the 200 known openly LGBTQ candidates on the ballot won their races - with six still undecided and six candidates heading to a runoff. Of the 382 known openly LGBTQ candidates who ran in 2019, 176 were endorsed by the LGBTQ Victory Fund.

            Below are key takeaways and a demographic and informational breakdown of the 382 openly LGBTQ candidates who ran in 2019. A statement from Mayor Annise Parker, president and CEO of the LGBTQ Victory Fund, is also included below. The most up-to-date information on the state of the races for candidates endorsed by the Victory Fund can be found at victoryfund.org/results2019.

  • 37.7% of known openly LGBTQ candidates won their races throughout 2019 (including Tuesday night), and 63.1% of Victory Fund-endorsed candidates were successful.
  • In 2019, LGBTQ men ran in much higher numbers than LGBTQ women, yet the women candidates won at a higher rate (46.2% to 36.9%).
  • 56.3% of known out trans women who ran for office in 2019 won their races.
  • In 2019, 83.2% of LGBTQ candidates ran as Democrats and 40.3% won, whereas 2.4% of LGBTQ candidates ran as Republicans and just 33.3% won.

Statement from Mayor Annise Parker, president and CEO of the LGBTQ Victory Fund
            By knocking on doors and speaking to the issues most pressing in their communities, LGBTQ candidates are winning elections in numbers and in parts of the country thought unthinkable a decade or two ago. LGBTQ people are in every community - we are people of color, women, immigrants, and people with disabilities - and we come from families both liberal and conservative. This beautiful diversity provides an opportunity to connect on some level with every single voter in America. That is the reason LGBTQ candidates are winning in unprecedented numbers, and this will only accelerate in the years ahead.
