Chad Griffin: ‘Best election, ever’Breaking News, Top Highlights Thursday, November 8th, 2012
Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) thanked members and supporters today describing Tuesday’s results as the “Best election, ever.”
In an email letter Griffin said, “Because of you, we just changed the course of history.
Before Tuesday, we had lost in every single state that voted on marriage equality. Every single one.
Now the votes from Washington are in, and we’ve won FOUR OUT OF FOUR. A clean sweep.
This is a huge deal. Not only did we just eliminate the anti-LGBT talking point that the public is against marriage equality – we re-elected President Obama, sent dozens of our heroes to Congress, put Tammy Baldwin in the Senate, defended a judge in Iowa from a political hatchet job, and reinvigorated this movement. The victories were almost too many to count.”
The Washington Post reported yesterday that the HRC was the single largest contributor to these ballot campaigns making this the most impactful election night in LGBT history.
Griffin ends his letter by reaffirming the HRC’s continuing efforts to achieve complete equality stating,
“But if you’ve ever doubted that equality will win in the end, those doubts can now be put to rest.”
