Gay lawmakers back Pelosis leadership bid

Chris Johnson

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosis (D-Calif.) decision to pursue a bid as minority leader in the upcoming Congress is being met with unanimous support among the openly gay members of Congress as some LGBT advocates expressed regret that more pro-gay legislation didnt pass during her tenure as presiding officer.

<...>

Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), the only out lesbian in Congress, said in a statement to the Blade that shes among those endorsing Pelosi in her decision to become Democratic leader in the next Congress.

<...>

In an interview with the Washington Blade on Monday, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), the longest-serving openly gay member of Congress, also said he backs Pelosis decision to stay on as Democratic leader. Hes often spoken highly of her commitment to LGBT issues.

<...>

Also among those expressing support for Pelosis continued leadership is Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.), a gay lawmaker who last week issued a statement praising Pelosis decision and her support for the LGBT community.

<...>

David Cicilline, the Rhode Island politician who last week was elected to become the fourth openly gay member of Congress, also endorses Pelosis move. Richard Luchette, a spokesperson for Cicilline, said the congressman-elect will be supporting Nancy Pelosi for minority leader.
