Lavender Magazine Endorses Reichgott Junge
The GLBT magazine Lavender has endorsed Ember Reichgott Junge for congress in the 5th District, according to a press release issued today by the Junge campaign.
In its edition due out tomorrow, Lavender cites Junge as "the most experienced, qualified, and progressive-thinking candidate...Unlike other candidates for the Fifth District seat, Reichgott Junge's stand on issues protecting those without a voice is not tokenism, but a real and concerned call to action from the mountaintops."
The press release also notes that Minneapolis has the third-largest concentration of gay and lesbian couples in the nation, according to the 2000 census.
