OutFront Minnesota, an organization working for equality for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) people and their families, has endorsed Margaret Anderson Kelliher as its preferred candidate for governor.
"Margaret Anderson Kelliher has been a strong advocate for equality for our community, and will continue to be once she is elected governor," says OutFront Minnesota Executive Director Amy Johnson in a news release. "Margaret brings to the table a strong combination of vision, experience, and commitment to making Minnesota stronger, and she views her efforts to achieve GLBT equality, including marriage equality, as an inherent part of that effort. OutFront Minnesota Action is proud to endorse Margaret Anderson Kelliher for governor."
The group says it interviewed Kelliher, former U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton (D), former legislator Matt Entenza (D) and Independence Party candidate Tom Horner. The organization said Republican Tom Emmer declined to be screened.
