Massachusetts, USA: All Three GOP Senate Candidates Say DOMA Should Be Repealed

Defense of Marriage ActAt a debate Wednesday night, all three GOP candidates for the open Massachusetts Senate seat, Mike Sullivan, Dan Winslow and Gabriel Gomez, went on record against DOMA. Pam’s House Blend reports:

SULLIVAN: I’m in support of the repeal of DOMA regardless of whether or not it’s constitutional. I think people in Massachusetts that are recognized as married couples should all be afforded the exact same benefits.

WINSLOW: I think it’s a shame that the U.S. Supreme Court has to decide this issue, because the Senate and Congress should decide this issue by repealing DOMA. I support the repeal of DOMA, and I believe in the equality of marriage for all people in Massachusetts and the country.

GOMEZ: I think that if two people are in love, they should be able to get married, irrespective. I support repealing DOMA.

Will they also openly declare support for marriage equality in general? if so, if one of them one, they’d be only the second GOP Senator to have done so.
