Democrats running against three Republican state representatives netted endorsements Tuesday, Sept. 27, from the MassEquality Political Action Committee, which is pressing to elect a slate of “committed LGBTQ champions” in Massachusetts.
In its third round of endorsements, the PAC announced it is backing Moses Dixon of Worcester in his campaign against Leicester Republican Rep. Kate Campanale, Paul Jacques of Rehoboth in his race against Rep. Steve Howitt of Seekonk, and former Rep. Rosemary Sandlin in her contest against Rep. Nick Boldyga of Southwick.
The MassEquality PAC also endorsed Rep. Dan Donahue of Worcester, a Democrat who on Nov. 8 faces former Rep. John Fresolo, who is running under the United Independent Party.
Governor’s Councilor Eileen Duff, a Democrat from Gloucester, was backed by the PAC in his race against Republican Richard Baker of West Newbury, who was endorsed Tuesday by Massachusetts Citizens for Life PAC.
The PAC reported a balance of $1,452.42 at the end of July. Emily Michalakes, the PAC’s political manager, said the PAC supports candidates through social media, grass roots organizing, and by partnering on canvasses and phone banks with other progressive groups.
