“The Log Cabin Republicans of the District of Columbia voted on Feb. 17 to endorse six of its members as candidates to become delegates from D.C. to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July. All six of the candidates, who are gay men, said they are running to become uncommitted delegates.” “I’m thrilled to see so many of our members running and am optimistic at the prospects our members could bring to the Republican Party and the District,” said Chris Allen, president of the D.C. Log Cabin group, which is a chapter of the national Log Cabin Republicans organization. The announced candidates include D.C. Log Cabin head Allen, National Log Cabin Republicans President Gregory Angelo, and local gay GOP activists Joe Brookman, Stephen Jordan, Rick Oettinger and Justin Kingsolver.

February Candidate Meet & Mingle and Chapter Endorsement Meeting
February 17, 2016
Camden Roosevelt Apartments (2101 16th Street NW)
The first two presidential primaries are behind us, and the next set are just days away. But the next White House occupant isn’t the only position we need to fill. Right here in the District of Columbia, the Chapter will hear from two candidates to represent the DC GOP to the Republican National Committee – Jill Homan and Bob Kabel – and a great pick for a DC at-large council seat in Dave Oberting.
But that’s not all! Six members of the Chapter are running to be delegates from the District to the Republican National Convention, where they will participate in the process to officially determine the GOP nominee who will replace Barack Obama and start putting this country back on the right track. Those members are:
Chris Allen, Chapter President
Gregory Angelo, National President
Come meet, drink, and mingle with these nine promising candidates who have earned unanimous endorsements from the Chapter Board of Directors and wish to earn your endorsement as well!

From all the social media posts over the past couple of weeks, it appears that many of you have been busy cheering on the US in the Winter Olympics or, more likely, binge-watching season two of House of Cards. Now that you may have some free time, consider joining the DC Chapter of Log Cabin Republicans at several upcoming events we have planned!
Don’t worry, between our lively discussions on ENDA and LCR candidates, you can hang-on to all the hype by comparing which House of Card character you favor from the Buzzfeed quiz you undoubtedly took, brag about how many DC places you could pinpoint from the opening scene, or dish about your favorite Johnny Wier outfit as well!

About our speakers:
Former Congressman Jim Kolbe served 11-terms in the U.S. House of Representatives representing the state of Arizona. He is currently a fellow at the German Marshall Fund think tank and a consultant at Kissinger McLarty Associates, where he focuses on issues of trade, aid and migration. In 2006, Rep.

Kruse leads the national effort to pass the Uniting American Families Act and has over 15 years of experience working for LGBT, immigrant, and women’s rights and economic justice. http://immigrationequality.org/
