Today the Human Rights Campaign, the host of the August 9th Democratic Presidential Debate has officially invited Senator Mike Gravel to the debate. This comes after Senator Gravel was refused entrance to the debate, despite his being the most out spoken candidate for LGBT rights and Gay Marriage.

We would like to thank the many supporters of Senator Gravel who upon hearing of this snub by the HRC, began a grassroots calling campaign to get the Senator in the debate. The HRC finally complied after being inundated by calls solidly supporting the Senator.

Senator Gravel could not have done this without the outpouring of support that he received from his community of supporters. He is looking forward to this debate so that he can show the LGBT community that he is the only candidate that truly supports their issues.
