The Stonewall Democrats of San Antonio spent a good part of Sunday, January 24 listening to over 50 candidates ask for the group’s endorsement for the March 1 Democratic primary.
The presidential endorsement went to Hillary Clinton.
Over 80 candidates were invited to participate. In the end, a little over 50 completed questionnaires and spoke at the forum.
There were about 40 Stonewall members present at the closed-door endorsement portion of the meeting.
In the race for State Senator District 26, Stonewall endorsed incumbent Jose Menendez who is being challenged by former State Rep. Trey Martinez Fisher.
The endorsement for State Representative, District 116, went to Martin Golando who is running against Bexar County Democratic Party secretary Diane Arevalo and former LGBT Chamber of Commerce president and business owner Ruby Resendez.
In the contest for Bexar County Sheriff, Stonewall endorsed former SAPD spokesman Javier Salazar.
