Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has won the endorsement of one of the nation's largest LGBTQ membership organizations.
Equality California and its Nevada partner organization have more than 900,000 members. Buttigieg is the only openly gay candidate in the race, but he wasn't the only candidate in the running for the endorsement.
The groups also considered backing Elizabeth Warren or Tom Steyer. But the endorsement committee believed Buttigieg had the most in-depth plans for protecting LGBTQ youth in schools and ending the HIV epidemic in the next decade
