Add this share

imageThe Georgia Log Cabin Republicans expanded its roster of endorsed candidates on Sunday, adding three gay candidates to its list of three others it’s previously stamped with a seal of approval.

Jamie Ensley (photo), president of GLCR, announced the additional endorsements Sunday. They include Brian Bates, a Republican incumbent in Doraville; Charlie Stadtlander, a candidate for Atlanta’s school board; and Kyle Williams, who is hoping to win a seat on the Decatur City Commission. All three men are gay.

The backing from GLCR for Stadtlander marks the first local gay group to endorse his campaign. Bates and Williams have also been endorsed by Georgia Equality; Atlanta Stonewall Democrats has also backed Williams.

The gay GOP group endorsed Ceasar Mitchell last month, citing his “leadership and commitment to fiscal responsibility” and his track record on LGBT issues. The group also endorsed Amir Farokhi and Adam Brackman, who is gay, last month.
