Human Rights Campaign Equality Votes PAC Condemns Radical Anti-Equality Ohio Senate Candidate Bernie Moreno

WASHINGTON - March 20, 2024 - Last night, extreme anti-equality politician Bernie Moreno won Ohio's Republican U.S. Senate primary. Moreno is a self-serving and radical politician who will say and do anything to get elected-including spreading hateful rhetoric about LGBTQ+ Ohioans and embracing policies that take away Ohioans' freedoms:

Geoff Wetrosky, Vice President of National Campaigns at the Human Rights Campaign, released the following statement:

"Bernie Moreno's willingness to attack LGBTQ+ Ohioans for political gain shows the depth of his extremism and the shallowness of his character. It's clear he has fully embraced an extremist brand of politics that spreads hate and seeks to take away freedoms from Ohioans-from health care to marriage equality-at every turn. His anti-equality, anti-abortion record puts him squarely on the wrong side of Ohio voters-including many members of his own party-a choice he'll pay for at the ballot box in November. The Human Rights Campaign Equality Votes PAC will make sure of it."

HRC's Equality Votes PAC will be mobilizing the more than two million Ohio Equality Voters-voters modeled to prioritize LGBTQ+ equality when making their voting decisions-from now until November to ensure they know about Moreno's dangerous record and understand what's at stake for LGBTQ+ people in Ohio and across the country.
