Video: Massachusetts Congressional Candidate Richard Tisei Speaks at D.C. Fundraiser

Massachusetts congressional candidate Richard Tisei told supporters who gathered at a Washington, D.C., restaurant earlier on Monday that he could be a strong voice for LGBT equality on Capitol Hill if elected in November.

“We’re all Republicans here and we’re all interested in seeing the direction of our party change a little with regards to individual freedom and individual liberty,” said Tisei after R. Clarke Cooper, executive director of Log Cabin Republicans, formally introduced him. “I do think that I can be a great spokesman for Log Cabin and really every American and every Republican who thinks you know our country should be a country based on laws–we should treat everybody fairly.”

Tisei announced his candidacy against incumbent Congressman John Tierney in the commonwealth’s newly redrawn Sixth Congressional District last November. U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, who grew up in the same North Shore town in which Tisei and his partner live, endorsed the former lieutenant gubernatorial candidate late last week.

A video of Tisei’s speech will be posted in the near future.
