Gay Jewish Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) is the co-founder of Equality PAC, a political action committee for LGBT lawmakers
Two gay congressmen are forming a political action committee to support the elections of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender lawmakers.
Reps. Jared Polis, D-Colo., and Mark Takano, D-Calif., announced Tuesday they are co-chairing the Equality PAC, which is endorsing Angie Craig, a congressional candidate from Minnesota running to fill the seat of retiring Rep. John Kline.
“Unlike other organizations, Equality PAC is not a single-issue organization,” a statement on the committee’s website reads. “Instead, we help elect candidates who support a broader equality agenda — one that includes LGBT rights, better pathways to citizenship, reproductive freedom, equal pay and reducing income inequality.”
