CHICAGO — The Equality Illinois Political Action Committee (PAC) today issued its early endorsements of legislative candidates running for office in the March 20, 2012 primary election who have strong voting records on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) issues.

"We really wanted to rush out of the gate early with our endorsements because these stakeholders have been the strongest supporters of the LGBT movement here in Illinois," Jeremy Gottschalk, President of Equality Illinois PAC Board of Directors, said. "We want to make sure that those legislators who have repeatedly supported us in the past have the opportunity to take advantage of the benefits that our PAC endorsement involves as quickly as possible. They have proven themselves to be great allies to the LGBT community, and we want to thank them publicly for their support."
