Gays Against Groomers Hops Into 2024 Races, Asks Endorsed Candidates To Take Pledge

Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist pioneered the “pledge” for politicians seeking an advocacy group’s election endorsement. It called for them to “oppose any and all tax increases,” or likely face the wrath of fiscally conservative voters.

Now a contrarian gay advocacy group is jumping into election endorsements with its own pledge: protect children from “sexualization, indoctrination, and medicalization under the guise of LGBTQ+.”

Gays Against Groomers debuted the pledge this month with six endorsed candidates running for city council, county board of supervisors and General Assembly in California, Colorado House, U.S. senator from New Jersey and school board in Wisconsin.

Only that last candidate, 19-year-old Brayden Myer, mentions the endorsement, however. James Clarke, Preston Romero, Ryan Armagost, Alex Villanueva and Gregg Mele don’t even mention GAG’s issues on their respective websites.

Myer finished last in the Feb. 20 primary.
