WASHINGTON – The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization, tonight congratulated Michigan’s Senator-elect Gary Peters on his victory. David Stacy, HRC’s Government Affairs Director, issued the following statement:

“Senator-elect Peters is a longtime champion of LGBT equality. During his time in the U.S. House of Representatives, Peters made his mark as a committed advocate for fair treatment and equal protection for all.
