"Brian Higgins is everything a representative in our government should be and more," said Bryan Ball, president of SDWNY. "For the LGBTQ community, and every woman, man and child in WNY, Brian Higgins is there. Leading on issues of equality such as employment non-discrimination, repealing discrimination in the military and LGBT-inclusive immigration efforts, Brian Higgins has long been a fighter for justice everywhere. Congressmember Higgins has always been there for us, and I am so proud to say that, again, we are there for him."
Rep. Brian Higgins does not have a Democratic primary, and will run for reelection in the November general election against anti-LGBT Republican candidate Kathy Weppner.
