Donnelly Supports Marriage Equality

Senator Joe Donnelly has added his voice to the growing chorus of voices supporting gay couples' right to marry. Here's what he wrote on his Facebook page:
“In recent years, our country has been involved in an important discussion on the issue of marriage equality. With the recent Supreme Court arguments and accompanying public discussion of same-sex marriage, I have been thinking about my past positions and votes. In doing so, I have concluded that the right thing to do is to support marriage equality for all.”
Only four Democratic Senators have not publicly backed same-sex marriage, according to the Human Rights Campaign. Here is coverage of Donnelly's evolution on this issue.
