Obama Gains Big Money From LGBT Advocates

Open Secrets reports that the Obama campaign has thus far raised $2.7 million from at least 12 leading gay rights advocates, totaling 5 percent of the money raised by bundlers. Obama has been courting the LGBT constituency for his reelection bid. Earlier this month, the president addressed the Human Rights Campaign and touted his accomplishments for the LGBT community — from signing hate crimes legislation, to hospital visitation, lifting the HIV travel ban, repealing DADT, and ending the defense of DOMA.
