Elizabeth Warren Is the Only Massachusetts Senatorial Candidate Who Hasn’t Stated a Position on LGBT Issues (updated)
By: Laurel Ramseyer
We may be a year away from the 2012 general elections, but the race for the U. S. Senate seat currently occupied by Sen. Scott Brown (R-Massachusetts) has been in full swing since Elizabeth Warren officially announced her candidacy in September.
A superstar of consumer advocacy, Warren has swiftly eclipsed her Democratic rivals and has even surpassed Sen. Brown 43-39 in a recent poll of registered voters. It seems likely that Elizabeth Warren will become the Democratic nominee for Senate.
That Warren could become such a solid candidate in Massachusetts without first outlining her views on civil rights is disturbing. Civil rights are nowhere to be seen on her list of priorities. And considering that the next junior senator from Massachusetts is certain to be voting on legislation directly impacting the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, it is more than disappointing that a candidate described as progressive would remain silent on LGBT legislative issues.
