Phil Weiser for Attorney General

One Colorado, the state’s leading advocacy organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Coloradans and their families, released the following statement from Executive Director Daniel Ramos in announcing that it has endorsed Phil Weiser for Attorney General:

“We had the opportunity to sit down and speak with both Phil Weiser and George Brauchler, and while both are qualified, we as an organization believe that Phil Weiser is the candidate who will make protecting the civil rights and freedoms of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Coloradans a top priority,” said Ramos.

“The job of the attorney general is to represent the State of Colorado and to fight for the civil rights of Coloradans. It was because we had a pro-equality attorney general in Cynthia Coffman that the civil rights of LGBTQ Coloradans were defended in the Supreme Court during the Masterpiece case. Considering the multitude of actions taken by the Trump administration to attack and roll back LGBTQ equality nationwide, it is more important than ever that Colorado has an attorney general who will defend the civil rights of everyone, including LGBTQ Coloradans. Phil Weiser will be that attorney general,” Ramos concluded.
