Moran Endorsed by Ebbin, Young Dems
Del. Adam P. Ebbin, the highest-ranking openly gay elected official in Virginia and the only openly gay member of the General Assembly, endorsed Democrat Brian Moran for governor.
Ebbin cited Moran's long-term commitment to fighting discrimination and his opposition to the Virginia marriage amendment, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman and was passed by voters in 2006.
"Brian Moran has always been a leader in the fight against discrimination, even when it wasn't popular," Ebbin said.
Moran, a former delegate, had been endorsed by the Virginia Partisans Gay and Lesbian Democratic Club and received the support of Equality Virginia PAC.
Moran was also endorsed by a couple dozen members of the Virginia Young Democrats, College Democrats and Students for Barack Obama. Moran will speak at the Young Democrats convention in Charlottesville today.
"Brian has proven to be an effective legislator and a true fighter for the progressive values that will keep Virginia moving forward in the 21st century," said Eugene Resnick, former president of the College Democrats of Virginia Federation.
