Washington, D.C. – Log Cabin Republicans (LCR), the nation’s oldest and largest organization of conservative LGBTQ Republicans and their allies, announces its endorsement of Donald J. Trump for reelection for President of the United States in 2020.
After consulting with over 50 chapters in 21 states, the National Board of Directors of Log Cabin Republicans voted to endorse President Trump. Simultaneously releasing an opinion editorial in the Washington Post, the following organization officers make these statements:
“Log Cabin Republicans is proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for reelection as President. He has delivered on his commitment to govern from a place of inclusion, and he has addressed significant policy areas important to our community. President Trump’s commitment to end the spread of HIV/AIDS in 10 years and his initiative to end the criminalization of homosexuality internationally are bold yet achievable goals of the great importance of the LGBTQ community. His policy agenda has benefited not just LGBTQ individuals but all Americans, and for that, he deserves four more years of leadership in the Oval Office.”
Robert Kabel – Chairman, Log Cabin Republicans
“We are excited to work with our colleagues at the Trump for President campaign and the Republican National Committee to be a part of the President’s reelection campaign. Our strong relationship continues to ensure that our distinct voice is represented in the GOP and that our community’s interests are heard and respected at the highest level. LGBTQ equality is a bipartisan effort and we will continue to work to elect Republican candidates who share our values.”
Jill Homan – Vice-Chairman, Log Cabin Republicans
“The radical left continues to distort President Trump’s record and mischaracterize his policy agenda. Log Cabin Republicans stand against their campaign of disinformation, demonization, and the usual scare tactics employed to keep the LGBTQ community hostage in the Democratic Party. Starting early, Log Cabin Republicans will bring together the diverse spectrum of conservative LGBTQ individuals to inform and activate in advance of the 2020 general election, and provide a space for disenfranchised independents and Democrats to learn about the inclusive conservatism in the Republican Party.”
Charles T. Moran – Board Member & National Spokesman
