(Washington, DC) – Log Cabin Republicans congratulate Mark Amodei and Bob Turner on their victories in yesterday’s special elections.

“Republicans won in Nevada and New York because of their focus on jobs, the deficit and the failed leadership of President Barack Obama,” said R. Clarke Cooper, Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director. “The President and his allies threw millions of dollars into these races in an effort to distract voters from staggering unemployment and an overwhelming debt. Just as the American people are not moved by gimmicks proposed by the White House, they stood against the hand-picked, machine-backed nominees who at best would be rubber stamps for failed Democratic policies. Voters in 2010 wanted a change, but Democrats responded by doubling down, reelecting Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. The 2012 elections will be another referendum with Obama ultimately ousted from the White House. We look forward to working with Congressmen-elect Mark Amodei and Bob Turner on efforts to create jobs, reduce the deficit and put America back on track.”


Log Cabin Republicans is the only Republican organization dedicated to representing the interests of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans and their allies. The more than 30-year old organization has state and local chapters nationwide, a full-time office in Washington, DC, a federal political action committee and state political action committees.
