Don Haider-Markel, a University of Kansas professor who studies LGBTQ political participation, said many candidates first entered the political fray on the tails of former LGBTQ officials.
They volunteered on campaigns or obtained a staff position post-election, which gave them a launchpad to run for office, he said. "With a lot of candidates in Texas, you see a similar pattern. They're well-networked in the political community already," Haider-Markel said. "They're not running for office on a whim. They've been building toward this over time." Almost all of the candidates on OutSmart's list are challengers, Democrats and from big cities. Haider-Markel said LGBTQ candidates in Texas - and ones in other traditionally red states like Kansas and Arkansas - tend to run in districts that lean left and are likely to support Democrats. Republican LGBTQ candidates face a steeper climb in getting elected, occasionally winning their primary election but usually losing the general election to the Democratic nominee, he said. While the Trump presidency may have created discontent among voters, the bathroom bill grabbed many Texans' attention and forced them to solidify and act on their beliefs, Haider-Markel said.
