Clinton names gay rights advocate as Indiana campaign director

Peter Hanscomb, who recently headed up Indiana Competes, a coalition of Indiana Businesses created to lobby for equal rights for the LGBT community, was just named head of Hillary Clinton’s campaign in Indiana.

Hanscomb previously worked with Freedom Indiana as deputy campaign manager. Freedom Indiana works to advance LGBT rights in the state. He has also served as outreach director for Senator Joe Donnelly, and political director for the state Democratic Party.

The appointment of a gay state-wide campaign director is no surprise for the Clinton campaign, which was the first to name an openly gay man, Robby Mook, as director of a major national campaign for the presidency.

Indiana’s open primary will be held on May 8.

3. Nice to know. I vaguely recall boycott Indiana when the legislature tried passing some

severe anti gay measures. Gov Pence as I recall.

6. DailyKos has it wrong.

Peter is not gay. But he was involved with Freedom Indiana supporting LGBT rights. The main advantage that Freedom Indiana got out of him was his past political experience mainly related with voter data. I know him personally. He recently became engaged to a young woman.
