The Advocate has endorsed President Obama for re-election calling his support for same-sex marriage a “watershed” moment. The publication made its endorsement with the headline, “In Obama We Trust.”
“Barack Obama is a leader of undeniable accomplishment, vision, and integrity on LGBT rights,” the publication declared. “His opponent Mitt Romney betrays equality on numerous issues and aligns himself with a faction of the Republican Party that does not include equality among its declared ideals.”
“The president’s statement of May 9, unequivocally in favor of marriage equality, along with his record on LGBT rights, has distinguished him for the ages and has made it clear that he is a transformational leader and our best choice for president,” they wrote.
