I’m sure Baker will say nice-sounding things about LGBTQ+ rights at the Log Cabin Republicans tonight — but he also chose as his Lt. Governor Karyn Polito, one of the leading voices in the legislature against equal marriage.
By endorsing Donald Trump’s campaign co-chairman Geoff Diehl for US Senate, Baker is saying that he thinks that we should replace U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren with a reliable vote for Trump’s anti-LGBTQ+ agenda in Washington.
Massachusetts deserves Jay Gonzalez, a governor who will fight for LGBTQ+ rights ALL the time, as a matter of principle, rather than a governor who gives nice speeches and then turns around to appoint, endorse, and raise money for people who want to take us backwards.
Quentin Palfrey is the Democratic nominee for Lt. Governor, running with Jay Gonzalez.
