Victory Fund: Sign card congratulating new U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, six out House members

Emailed Thursday from Victory Fund:


Earlier today Tammy Baldwin raised her hand and swore an oath to "well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office" she was about to enter. Now we can officially call her Senator Tammy Baldwin. LGBT Americans have finally broken through a glass ceiling that held firm for more than two centuries.

This is real progress – a victory for us all. And this is a moment to smile, celebrate and raise a glass to toast a record number of out federal lawmakers.

We'll be celebrating tomorrow evening at a reception in Washington that's growing larger and larger by the day. More than 500 are now expected to applaud Senator Baldwin and her six openly gay and bisexual colleagues who were sworn in as members of the House of Representatives today. We hope you can join us.

If you can't make it, I hope you will send your congratulations by signing our card right now.
