Out in Congress.

I appreciate your series on LGBT candidates ["An Eye on the House," June 22] and want to make sure that Advocate readers are aware of three LGBT congressional candidates who have an excellent chance of winning this year. Two of these races are in solid Democratic districts, where the primary will be the deciding election.

Former Atlanta city council president Cathy Woolard is running in Georgia's fourth congressional district with a July 20 primary and an August 10 runoff. State senator Tim Carpenter is running in Wisconsin's fourth congressional district with a winner-take-all primary on September 14. And former Wilton Manors, Fla., mayor Jim Stork is challenging Republican Clay Shaw Jr. in Florida's 22nd congressional district in the November 2 general election.

All three candidates have held elected office and are raising impressive amounts of money and running effective campaigns.
