Human Rights Campaign Endorses Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser for Reelection
The Human Rights Campaign PAC (HRC PAC) announced its endorsement of Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser for reelection. The HRC PAC is committed to engaging our volunteers, members and supporters to mobilize the 1.5 million Equality Voters in Colorado in support of candidates up and down the ballot in November who will fight to protect democracy and equality for all Coloradans.
Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Interim President Joni Madison issued the following statement:
“Attorney General Weiser has been unwavering in his fight to defend Coloradoans against those who want to roll back our rights. He has protected access to affordable healthcare, defended voting rights, and has fought to ensure that LGBTQ+ Coloradans can live their lives free from harassment and discrimination. The LGBTQ+ community in Colorado needs allies like Attorney General Weiser to guard these hard-fought rights on our behalf. The Human Rights Campaign is proud to endorse his bid for reelection.”
Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser released the following statement:
“I am proud to be a strong ally in the fight for the dignity and equal rights of the LGBTQ+ community. Every American should be able to live their true authentic self free from discrimination or violence. It's why I fought to protect employees from losing their job just because they are gay or transgender, and why we are currently defending Colorado's civil rights law at the U.S. Supreme Court, arguing that businesses cannot deny goods or services to members of the LGBTQ+ community. I am honored to have the endorsement of HRC and I am committed to working together to fulfill our nation's promise of liberty and justice for all.”
HRC’s Commitment to Colorado
Equality Voters, including the 1.5 million in Colorado, are a voting bloc of demographically and geographically diverse Americans who are united by the advancement of LGBTQ+ equality. Equality Voters are younger, more racially diverse, and more female than the general electorate, they recognize and trust the HRC brand, and they are more likely to identify with issue-specific organizations than candidates or political parties.
Across the country, HRC PAC works every day to elect pro-equality leaders who support policies that will support the rights and lives of LGBTQ+ people. During the 2020 election cycle, HRC staff on the ground recruited 5,800 individual volunteers nationwide who completed 28,500 hours of voter contact in more than 2,650 volunteer events. HRC engaged in robust digital and online GOTV efforts, including sending over 2.7 million person-to-person text messages, a massive increase from 2018 when approximately 500,000 texts were sent. HRC sent over 2.5 million mail pieces, had over 930,000 phone conversations with voters, and engaged more than 200,000 voters through HRC’s voter dashboard at hrc.org/vote.
