Angelo released the following statement with regard to the relaunch:
"Log Cabin Republicans' more than 30 year history has all led up to this moment. We're launching a more aggressive strategy for 2013 and beyond – one that holds the Republican Party more accountable on LGBT issues and seeks to strengthen and leverage our local Chapters in order to gain Republican allies where they matter most: at the state level. We've worked more than 30 years to have a seat at the table; now that we're there, we're going to make our voices heard.
"With the Republican logjam on marriage equality now officially broken and Americans more accepting than ever of allowing committed same-sex couples the freedom to marry, now is the time to push the Republican Party toward the right side of history. This is our moment. This is our fight. And this is a fight we are going to win."
