Here’s an interesting comment from a Reuters article
“If all three candidates win it shows that it’s safe for candidates and increasingly safe for Republicans to vote for the freedom to marry,” said Marc Solomon, national campaign director for Freedom to Marry, an advocacy group for the right of same-sex couples to wed.
If the senators lose, Solomon said, “It won’t help.”
That explains why Kathy and Neil’s primaries were so important, it was the front line in the fight for Traditional Marriage.
Thanks to all who helped out. It’s going to come down to the wire in both races.
