Today Victory Fund endorsed two non-incumbent openly LGBTQ candidates for the 2017 election cycle: Alex Wan, who is running for President of the Atlanta City Council, and Lisa Middleton, who is running for Palm Springs City Council in California.
Wan has served on the Atlanta City Council since 2010 and has a long career in community service.
Middleton is a member of the Palm Springs Planning Commission, current Chairwoman of the Organized Neighborhoods of Palm Springs, and has served on the boards of the Desert LGBTQ Center and Desert Horticulture Society.
Victory Fund also endorsed incumbent Seattle Mayor Ed Murray.
These candidates will join Atlanta mayoral candidate Cathy Woolard, and candidate for Anchorage Downtown Assembly Chris Constant, who were previously endorsed by Victory Fund.
