Log Cabin Republicans Endorses President Trump for Reelection in 2020
Washington, D.C. – Log Cabin Republicans (LCR), the nation’s oldest and largest organization of conservative LGBTQ Republicans and their allies, announces its endorsement of Donald J. Trump for reelection for President of the United States in 2020.
After consulting with over 50 chapters in 21 states, the national Board of Directors of Log Cabin Republicans voted to endorse President Trump. Simultaneously releasing an opinion editorial in the Washington Post, the following organization officers make these statements:
“Log Cabin Republicans is proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for reelection as President. He has delivered on his commitment to govern from a place of inclusion, and he has addressed significant policy areas important to our community. President Trump’s commitment to end the spread of HIV/AIDS in 10 years and his initiative to end the criminalization of homosexuality internationally are bold yet achievable goals of great importance of the LGBTQ community. His policy agenda has benefited not just LGBTQ individuals but all Americans, and for that, he deserves four more years of leadership in the Oval Office.”
Robert Kabel – Chairman, Log Cabin Republicans
“We are excited to work with our colleagues at the Trump for President campaign and the Republican National Committee to be a part of the President’s reelection campaign. Our strong relationship continues to ensure that our distinct voice is represented in the GOP and that our community’s interests are heard and respected at the highest level. LGBTQ equality is a bipartisan effort and we will continue to work to elect Republican candidates who share our values.”
Jill Homan – Vice-Chairman, Log Cabin Republicans
“The radical left continues to distort President Trump’s record and mischaracterize his policy agenda. Log Cabin Republicans stands against their campaign of disinformation, demonization and the usual scare tactics employed to keep the LGBTQ community hostage in the Democratic Party. Starting early, Log Cabin Republicans will bring together the diverse spectrum of conservative LGBTQ individuals to inform and activate in advance of the 2020 general election, and provide a space for disenfranchised independents and Democrats to learn about the inclusive conservatism in the Republican Party.”
Charles T. Moran – Board Member & National Spokesman

Rep. Richard Neal, D-Mass., faces a challenge for re-election from a 30-year-old Massachusetts mayor campaigning on the House Ways and Means Committee chairman’s inaction on obtaining President Donald Trump’s tax returns, NBC News reported. “So, when you look at the timing here, we’re now very unlikely to see any result before the 2020 election, because Congressman Neal dragged his feet. We also have people in New York that have worked tirelessly to give the American people access to his New York state tax returns.” “I think his action is emblematic of a kind of leader, or lack thereof, that’s he’s been over the last 30 years,” Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse told NBC News about Neal’s authority to obtain President Trump’s state returns. Rep. Neal has held off using the New York state law to obtain his state tax returns because it might jeopardize the ability to obtain federal returns, according to the report. President Trump filed a federal lawsuit this week to block Rep. Neal from using the state law to obtain the federal return. “I know people here in western Massachusetts, and people around the country, are frustrated with the way in which he’s handled this issue from day one. I mean, Democrats took back the House, and it took [months] to put a letter together. I know it doesn’t take us that long to put letters together at City Hall when we have to look at legal issues. “It’s unfortunate that there are folks who aren’t living what he’s living, making statements and comments and Monday morning quarterbacking the situation,” a source told NBC News of Rep. Neal.
The president’s eldest son recently saw a successful round of fundraising in California. According to Monday reports, Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle raised $2.5 million over a 48-hour period last week. The money will likely go toward Trump Victory, which is one of the main fundraising vehicles for the president’s re-election campaign.
Until this point, the exact locations for the fundraising events had been kept under wraps.
“Some ugly things have happened recently to the Trump family, and I think they’d like to avoid that,” said John Dennis, San Francisco Republicans chairman.
Around 200 donors reportedly attended exclusive fundraisers held in major cities, including San Francisco, Los Angeles and Palo Alto. Guests included a part owner of the San Francisco Giants, the former chairman of the Fine Art Museum of San Francisco, and the founder of American technology company Oculus VR.
“We support Donald Trump, we want him to be elected again.” stated Joan Leone, President of Republican Women of San Francisco.
The fundraisers took place while the president held his own money-raising event in New Jersey on Friday. The three authorized Trump fundraising entities– Trump for President, Trump Victory and The Trump Make America Great Again Committee — have a combined $80.2 million in cash on hand.
