Liberal Democrat Lyn Franks is vying to become the first openly LGBT state legislator in Alaska. She’s running against Republican David Nelson for House Seat 15 in Anchorage.
Franks is endorsed by a slew of far-left liberal groups that want to expand abortion, roll back pro-life laws, use federal tax dollars to pay for abortion, ban pro-life pregnancy centers and abstinence based education, mandate explicit sex-ed in programs in schools and allow biologically male students who believe they are female to compete with girls in high school sports.
Her campaign website sticks to far less controversial talking points like wanting to “make a difference in my community,” defending the PFD, supporting education and child day care and improving public safety.

She talks about raising her family in Muldoon with her “then husband,” but the official website never once mentions her LGBT political agenda.
The LGBT political activist group Alaskans Together for Equality, however, fully endorses Franks who following the endorsement Tweeted, “we’re going to bring the fight for LGBTQ equality to Juneau!”
She’s also backed by Make Room Now a far-left activist group with the stated goal to “get progressive policies passed, and ensure that progressive candidates are elected.”
Make Room looks promote candidates that support the Green New Deal, defunding the police, expanding abortion and pushing LGBT legislation.
