cicilline221Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., has won a second term in the U.S. House representing Rhode Island’s 1st Congressional District.  He faced a tough challenge from GOP nominee Sean Doherty in his first reelection bid.

“We’re thrilled that David will return to Capitol Hill, where his voice will be vital in a growing caucus of openly LGBT lawmakers,” said Chuck Wolfe, president and CEO of the Victory Fund.

Cicilline is one of four openly gay and lesbian members of the House currently.
