    Sen. Tom Carper Endorses Same-Sex Marriage

    By Alex Rogers
    April 2, 2013 | http://swampland.time.com/2013/04/02...-sex-marriage/

    Citing the Bible’s Golden Rule, Sen. Tom Carper [D-Delaware] announced his endorsement for same-sex marriage on Facebook. “All Americans ultimately should be free to marry the people they love and intend to share their lives with, regardless of their sexual orientation,” he said. “That’s why today, after a great deal of soul searching, I’m endorsing marriage equality.”

    Carper no doubt has seen many of his Democrat colleagues— Sens. Bob Casey (Pa.), Kay Hagan (N.C.), Jon Tester (Mont.), Mark Warner (Va.), and Claire McCaskill (Mo.)— flip on the issue in the past two weeks, and decided it was safe to announce his support in liberal Delaware. A Delaware News Journal poll released in January showed 52% in favor of same-sex marriages.

    Tom Carper Latest Senate Dem for Same-Sex Marriage

    By Sunlen Miller
    April 2, 2013 | http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics...-sex-marriage/

    Another day, another Senate Democrat comes out in support of same-sex marriage.

    Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., announced today that he has changed his mind and now supports same-sex marriage.

    The senator, 66, made the announcement on his Facebook page this morning, saying, “As our society has changed and evolved, so too has the public’s opinion on gay marriage – and so has mine.”

    Which is why next year is so important. Don't think for a minute the Repulibicans will be supporting gay marriage in large numbers.

    Here is a nice image of 50 U.S. senators now on board for marriage equality. (I found it from ThinkProgress.com.…)

    Indeed but it will be a long road still. The Supreme Court looks to kick the can down the road,and they know it.

    Re: U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan declares her support for gay marriage; others follow suit

    ^ chrisrobin: Thanks for that update about Florida U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson endorsing marriage equality! (I wasn't available and appreciate anyone and everyone doing this.) Here is a link to Tampa Bay Times's report:
    @ http://www.tampabay.com/news/courts/...rriage/2113230 .

    I'm guessing the next [U.S.] Senate Democrat to come out for marriage equality will be South Dakota's Tim Johnson. He's retiring next year; but if he doesn't endorse, it may be that presumption of fear that says, "What if S.D. goes Republican in 2014!?" But I think he's more likely to come out for same-sex couples and marriage equality before Arkansas's Mark Pryor and Louisiana's Mary Landrieu. I don't know about North Dakota's Heidi Heitkamp. Indiana's Joe Donnelly who, like Heitkamp, was first elected last year is apparently opposed. I have no confidence in West Virginia's Joe Manchin. (As is true of the state in general.)

    And there goes Donnelly and Heitkamp:

    http://thinkprogress.org/lgbt/2013/0...iage-equality/

    This is seriously becoming like clockwork! I predict Tim Johnson because as you said CoolBlue, he's retiring after this term. He also already supports repealing DOMA. Landrieu may surprise everyone and come out in favor as Kay Hagan did. I agree that Manchin and Pryor are highly unlikely to come out in favor anytime soon, both for political reasons and also because they're likely personally opposed.

    I think we'll see more Republicans soon too, most likely Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, though maybe one will pull a Portman and surprise us.

    I forgot to mention but Landrieu has indicated that she's personally supportive, so it may not be a huge step for her.

    Re: U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan declares her support for gay marriage; others follow suit

    Here's the thing..the last four are NOT going to change their tune. They are in very Red States where people are already angry about gun control,coming out for gay marriage would be career suicide.
    More to the point...as shown elsewhere,just because someone has a D next to their name,it doesn't mean they are for gay marriage. Joe Manchin is a Blue Dog Democrat.

    So you say.

    http://www.towleroad.com/2013/04/landrieu.html

    I consider this a half-endorsement. Not a full endorsement sure, but it's understandable why she wouldn't fully come out in favor right now.

    I predict Pryor and Manchin won't come out in favor anytime soon, both due to the states they represent and their personal beliefs. I do expect Johnson to come out in favor soon though.

    And then we have this:

    http://thenewcivilrightsmovement.com...ts+Movement%29

    I think this is a strong indication that Susan Collins is getting ready to come out in favor.

    That's a total cop out. Way to lead from behind. Pathetic and I absolutely don't consider this limp attempt at playing both sides to be an "endorsement"

    Thank you, scream4ever, for also posting this!



    It's interesting, indeed, and this may change the dynamics for Senate Republicans as well. Maine's Susan Collins — up for re-election in 2014 — is the one who intrigues me most because of incumbency and whether she'd have a bitch of a time coming out for support in the midst of a primary season. It's early still; but she'd be okay, for sure, if the "tea party" (and I quote that because it's a Koch brothers' manufactured movement) shifts in the direction of supporting marriage equality.




    Separate Note: I tuned in Stephanie Miller's program, simulcast on Current TV, and today it was reported that Scott Brown — unseated in last year's U.S. Senate election in Massachusetts by the state's senior U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren — may move to New Hampshire and challenge that state's senior U.S. senator, Jeanne Shaheen, for the 2014 general election. I'd say, if he were to do that, he'd need a Republican wave election to unseat her.

    Not to mention she hails from a Jim Crow state, one of the worst.

    It is a joke. She would have been better on saying nothing at all. She'll still get support though,because it will be her or someone who is defiantely anti-gay for the Republican side.

    Re: U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan declares her support for gay marriage; others follow suit

    Mark Pryor indicates he's undecided on the issue:

    http://www.towleroad.com/2013/04/sen...-category.html

    While not an endorsement, this can still be considered movement nonetheless. As I said, I predict Manchin will reiterate his opposition and Johnson will come out in favor.

    As far as Susan Collins, the Tea Party is greatly fractured in Maine, having lost both chambers of the state legislature and Lepage being one of the most unpopular governors in the country. I really think she doesn't have much to worry about in regards to coming out in support.

    I get why people want these last holdouts to come to our side but you have to understand how deeply homophobic the places they represent are.
    Backing gay marriage IS a losing issue in these states,especially Arkansas,which as Jockboy87 pointed out,it one of the most homophobic places in NOrth America.
    Some stay and fight the good fight but for the most part, any LGBT people I know that lived in Arkansas got out of there as fast as they could.

    So true. There are people on the gay blogosphere who are very bitter with Landrieu, but it's not like she's not a vast improvement over her colleague David Vitter, whose naked hostility towards LGBT people is much worse than Landrieu's tepid support for us.

    Not to mention David Vitter is a hypocrite. He can cheat on his wife and sleep with many of women as possible but if gays and lesbians get married,that's just wrong.
    But is just how it is down there. Homosexuality is considered worse then adultery,murder,rape etc to many people down there.

    South Dakota Sen. Tim Johnson says he now
    supports gay marriage after ‘lengthy consideration’


    By Associated Press
    April 8, 2013 | http://www.washingtonpost.com/nation...695_story.html

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — South Dakota [U.S.] Sen. Tim Johnson, who announced his retirement last month, has reversed his position on gay marriage, saying Monday [04.08.2013] that he supports the legalization of same-sex unions.



    “After lengthy consideration, my views have evolved sufficiently to support marriage equality legislation,” Johnson said in a written statement. “This position doesn’t require any religious denomination to alter any of its tenets; it simply forbids government from discrimination regarding who can marry whom.”

    Re: U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan declares her support for gay marriage; others follow suit

    ^^^

    I predict he'll be the last one for at least a little while, until Collins, Murkowski, or another Republican comes out in favor (or Landrieu, Pryor, or Manchin do an about-face on the issue).

    Lisa Murkowski is third Republican senator
    to support same-sex marriage

    As supreme court weighs marriage equality,
    Alaska senator joins Mark Kirk and Rob Portman as Republicans in favour


    By Amanda Holpuch
    June 19, 2013 | http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013...t-gay-marriage

    A third sitting Republican senator has backed gay marriage as the US waits for the Supreme Court to reach a decision on two pivotal cases regarding the constitutionality same-sex marriage.

    Lisa Murkowski of Alaska said on Wednesday [June 19] that she supported marriage equality and "supports the government getting out of the way to let that happen."

    In her Wednesday statement, she cited a female couple who had adopted four children but did not have the same rights as other families.

    I'm surprised Lisa Murkowski didn't come out for marriage equality sooner. Keep in mind despite the fact she is pretty much Republican all the way,she is considered a rino because she won't kiss the butt of the far right right. 2010 was not the first time she faced a primary threat and it won't be the last.
