Oregon Representative Kurt SchraderAnd yet another House democrat has jumped on the marriage equality bandwagon – Oregon’s Kurt Schrader. Oregon Live reports:

“After many discussions with my constituents, I have decided to support marriage equality. I recently traveled on the civil rights pilgrimage to Selma, Alabama with the Faith and Politics Institute. This trip reaffirmed my commitments to civil rights for all, including gay and lesbian Americans. I supported civil unions in the Oregon Legislature. I now believe that while religious institutions should retain the right to perform marriages as they please, the government should not deny the rights of same sex couples to receive marriage licenses.”

17 left to go, according to MoveOn.org.
