Terry McAuliffe: “I believe everyone should be treated fairly.”

Terry McAuliffeLGBT Democrats of Virginia contacted the 2013 Democratic nominee for Governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, to find out where he stands on LGBT equality. His statement is below.

“As Governor, I will re-enact and enforce tough non-discrimination protections because no one should lose their job because of who they love. Virginia has to be known as the best place to work if we want to be the best state for business.

I believe everyone should be treated fairly. I personally favor civil marriage for committed couples of the same-sex. I understand that this is an issue that Virginians of goodwill come down on both sides of and it is an issue where, like many Virginians, my views have changed from earlier in my life. Regardless of where you stand on this issue, one thing Dorothy and I consistently hear is that people are tired of issues like this being used to divide people especially when we face such important economic challenges here in Virginia.”
