WASHINGTON - Human Rights Campaign-endorsed candidate Bob Casey in Pennsylvania mounted an impressive victory over anti-gay incumbent Rick Santorum. This year, HRC flexed its political muscle and launched an extensive and strategic campaign in partnership with local organizations that resulted in a clear victory for fair-minded candidate Casey.
"HRC got behind my campaign early and has been a tremendous help. The energy and commitment they put behind our campaign was extraordinary. I look forward to working with HRC's incredible staff and membership, especially to advance hate crimes legislation in the Senate," said Senator-Elect Casey.
HRC raised more than $375,000 for Casey's campaign, dispatched four HRC Youth College staffers and organized more than 200 volunteers over Election Day weekend to get out the vote in key U.S. congressional and state legislative districts in the Philadelphia suburbs.
The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against GLBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
