The Democratic Party of Hawaii’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered caucus has released its primary election endorsements and, not surprisingly, the gay rights activists have targeted several Democratic incumbents who voted against the civil-unions bill that passed the state Legislature last session.

The caucus backed the opponent of one Senate Democrat who voted `no’ — Sen. Mike Gabbard — and six House Democrats who voted `no’ — Rep. Joseph Souki, Rep. Roland Sagum III, Rep. Isaac Choy, Rep. Sharon Har, Rep. Karen Awana and Rep. Ken Ito.

The only other Democratic incumbent on the target list: House Speaker Calvin Say, who voted for civil unions but still managed to upset gay rights activists.

GLBT Caucus Recommendations for Primary Election

  1. Christians:

    And we care because? There are more Christian voters voting for Senator Gabbard and others who voted against homosexuality in public acceptance compared to the GLBT. Are they supposed to scare anyone. Come on are you kidding us?

  2. ohiaforest3400:

    Exactly. Why be threatened? People are people and have far more in common than they have separating them. I’m no more likely to vote for someone endorsed by Hawaii Family Forum than one endorsed by the GLBT Caucus, unless you consider the fact that more blood has spilled over the course of history in the name of religion and “God” than in the name of equality.
