Co-Chair of the 2008 Obama for America Campaign's National LGBT Leadership Council responds to President Obama's historic announcement about same-sex marriage
SAN DIEGO, May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- "Today is an historic moment in the history of the United States; President Obama announced his support of same- sex marriage. In 2007 when I decided to support candidate Barack Obama, I was attracted by his honesty and truth of character. During the 2008 campaign, President Obama announced his support for civil unions. Later, the President said his position was evolving. President Obama has been honest and truthful about his position from the beginning.
President Obama's journey is that of most Americans as they conclude that equality, fairness and freedom are at the very core of American values. I celebrate the President's journey and commend him for his courage."
