NEW YORK: Gay Pols To Endorse Hillary Clinton

From the New York Daily News:

Ten gay and lesbian state and city Democratic elected officials on Tuesday are set to formally endorse Hillary Clinton for president, the Daily News has learned. Among those backing Clinton are state Sen. Brad Hoylman, a Manhattan Democrat and the state’s only openly gay senator, as well as Assembly members Deborah Glick (D-Manhattan), Daniel O’Donnell (D-Manhattan), Harry Bronson (D-Rochester), and Matthew Titone (D-Staten Island). City Council members James Vacca, who recently came out as gay, Daniel Dromm, Corey Johnson, Rosie Mendez, and James Van Bramer are also endorsing her.

Three groups, the Lesbian and Gay Democratic Club of Queens, the Lambda Independent Democrats of Brooklyn, and the Gay and Lesbian Independent Democrats are also throwing their support behind the former First Lady-turned U.S. senator from New York-turned secretary of state. During an appearance in Iowa on Sunday, Clinton, who recently was endorsed by the Human Rights Campaign, a national gay rights group, promised to continue expanding the gains made on gay rights under President Obama.
