The Long Beach Lambda Democratic Club has endorsed candidates and made recommendations on state-wide ballot measures for the General Election in November.
According to Lambda’s By-laws, a candidate must be a Democrat to garner the endorsement, even in non-partisan races. However, even in a general election, party affiliation alone will not automatically generate an endorsement. The candidate must also meet the PAC Committee’s criteria.
Lambda also adopted positions on 4 of the 12 state-wide Initiatives slated for the November ballot and deferred positions on the others. Most notably, Lambda strongly urges a “NO” vote to both of the proposed amendments to the state constitution: Propositions 4 and 8.
