Is Mike Hatch Ashamed to be seen with Stonewall DFL

When he met with the Stonewall DFL screening committee last month, Mike Hatch told them, he wasn't going to list any endorsements on his campaign website. What is interesting about this is that Mike Hatch still has an endorsement page up. It is currently not linked from the main page. I've copied the screen shot in case this disappears from the website. Hatch has no problem listing labor endorsements, but he clearly didn't want to publicly acknowledge Stonewall DFL's endorsement should he get the endorsement. I recognised two gay DFL activists (Rick Stafford and Javier Morillo-Alicea) on the Hatch endorsement list and no openly gay DFL elected officials. That speaks volumes.

Becky Lourey definitely has an opening here if she uses it. Peter Hutchinson has an opening here in the general.
