Equality PAC, an LGBT rights group endorsed Tom Malinowski on Tuesday
“Tom Malinowski has proven throughout his career as a human rights activist that he’s an advocate, ally, and friend to the LGBT community, both in this country and abroad,” said Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), the PAC’s co-chair. “We know that electing Tom will mean having a stalwart and constant defender of LGBT rights, and that he won’t passively accept this administration’s transgressions.”
A relatively new organization, the PAC spent less than $150,000 in 2016. It’s geared up significantly since then and has spent $1.6 million in the 2018 cycle so far. It’s raised $2.2 million this year.
Rep. Josh Gottheimer is the only New Jersey representative to get any of those funds so far.
That money could prove invaluable when it goes to Malinowski, who recently secured the support of the Human Rights Campaign, another LGBT rights group
