The Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization, has endorsed Democrat Gaye Symington for governor.
“The Human Rights Campaign is proud to endorse Gaye Symington, a proven champion for LGBT equality, in her campaign to become governor of Vermont,” said Human Rights Campaign National Field Director Marty Rouse. “Gaye has consistently been a strong advocate for LGBT equality, and her election as Governor will be an important step toward making full equal rights a reality for all Vermonters.”
In this case it was not necessarily networking in Denver and D.C. that nabbed her the endorsement. Before joining the Human Rights Campaign, Rouse, a former Vermont resident, worked to re-elect members of the Vermont House and Senate who voted for civil unions legislation in 2000.
