Here is the link to results being counted in California and Contra Costa County:
The Lambda Democratic Club of Contra Costa County is elated with some of the results so far and we are so proud of all the LGBTQ candidates who ran and all candidates who support LGBTQ rights. Some of the local votes are still being counted so we have not made an official announcement yet.
On a national level it looks like the Blue Wave hit the House of Representatives for a majority and some Senate, House, and Governor seats are still being counted. We can see by the numbers how each vote counts!
Special Guest State Senator Ricardo Lara will receive Lambda’s Courage Award at this year’s event. Several candidates and elected officials will also be attending as Lambda’s special guests during this membership drive celebration. Let’s break bread!

Lambda Democratic Club of Contra Costa County Statement on SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh
If confirmed, Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh will end the Court’s majority on LGBTQI rights and help undermine and take away equal rights and protection under the law that has already been deemed constitutional for LGBTQI Americans.
Make no mistake- the clock will be turned backward for LGBTQI Americans after fighting for decades to win rights and protections against discrimination.
Kavanaugh has been involved in writing opinions on many major issues recently including Religious Freedom, Immigrant rights, Voting rights, Workers’ rights, Women’s rights, and Kavanaugh also disagreed with Justice Roberts upholding the Affordable Care Act.
Catch the Blue Wave and Join the Lambda Democratic Club of Contra Costa County.
