Pro-LGBT Arizona Attorney General Visits HRC

Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard, a Democratic candidate for Governor, visited HRC in Washington this week.  During his time as AG, Goddard has been instrumental in supporting the LGBT community including when in 2008 Gov. Napolitano decided to provide DP benefits for state employees.  He was also a great advocate for the community when he fought for and won the most positive ballot language for the marriage amendments in 2006 and 2008.  He has always been a strong ally to the community and served as HRC’s honorary co-chair for the Arizona Gala in 2009. While Attorney General Goddard expected a friendly reception, he was surprised to meet so many Arizonans on HRC’s staff: (l-r) Greg Stanton from AG staff, HRC’s Tony Wagner, former staff member of the AZ Democratic Party, HRC’s Andrea Levario and Mike Mings (both native Arizonans), AG Terry Goddard, and AZ Dem Party’s Devin Rankin.
