State-level Republican parties widely see eye to eye on guns, taxes and the role of government. But they split in every direction when it comes to gay marriage: Some are for it, some are against and other states want to avoid it entirely.
Last week, the Washington D.C. Republican Committee – the equivalent of the state party – became the first state GOP group to officially endorse gay marriage with a plank in its 2012 platform.
Same-sex marriage is already legal in D.C. The “Family and Marriage” section of the new platform affirms, “We, the Republicans of the District of Columbia, support the belief that all individuals, without regard to sexual orientation, are entitled to full and equal protection under the laws and the Constitution and that everyone has the right to be treated with dignity and respect.”
