WASHINGTON — Log Cabin Republicans will debut a new ad campaign Thursday pushing the GOP to abandon its “obsession” with opposing LGBT equality.
In a full-page ad to run in Politico on Thursday, LCR argues the Republican party “must put an end to its obsession with opposing equal rights for LGBT Americans. … If you don’t make the tent bigger, you might as well fold it up and go home.”
The ad push comes on the heels of Rhode Island’s Republican senators unanimously backing marriage equality, and the organization hopes to see further movement across the country on the issue.
LCR executive director Gregory Angelo said in a statement Wednesday evening following the Senate passage of a marriage equality bill that his group “applauds the Rhode Island State Legislature for making marriage equality a reality for the residents of the state, with special thanks to the leadership shown by the Republican Senate delegation who made history as the first caucus of any party to vote unanimously in favor of the freedom to marry.”
