The Connecticut Republican Party actively recruited six out gay and lesbian candidates to run for State Assembly this November in their bid to win a majority there. The Democrats have just two out gay Assembly candidates running.

While the national Republican Party is dedicated to blocking and repealing LGBTQ rights, A.J. Kerouac, one of the out Republican candidates, told NBC News, “The majority of our Democrats are a little more conservative than most Democrats in the country, and most of our Republicans are a little more liberal than most of the Republicans in our country.”

Gregory T. Angelo, president of the gay Log Cabin Republicans, told NBC that this strategy in Connecticut “is cutting Democrats off at their knees.”
