“Instead of honoring the memory of those we lost at Pulse two months ago, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio have come to Orlando to headline a gathering of some of the nation’s most incendiary anti-gay bigots. We at the DNC join all people of good conscience in expressing our solidarity with the Orlando LGBT community as they continue to grieve the deadliest shooting in American history. We suggest Trump and Rubio disavow these anti-gay extremists who have likened gay people to Nazis and characterized HIV/AIDS as divine ‘penalties’ for being gay. Failing to do so will be yet another example of the utter lack of judgment that makes Trump unfit to serve.”
If you live in Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Western Queens there’s a very high probability you live in a district where there is a contested congressional primary. It’s totally crazy that we need to vote four times this year. On the other hand, with turnout likely to be as low as 4% today in many places, your vote really does matter and there are some strong candidates who really deserve it. So take a few minutes out of your day and be part of the solution, not the problem, by making your voice heard at the ballot box.
