USA: And Then There Were Three – South Dakota Senator Tim Johnson for Marriage Equality

Written by scott on April 8th, 2013

South Dakota Senator Tim JohnsonThe number of Democratic US Senators who don’t support marriage equality continues to dwindle. South Dakota Senator Tim Johnson endorses marriage equality. Think Progress reports:

JOHNSON: After lengthy consideration, my views have evolved sufficiently to support marriage equality legislation. 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. Only three Democratic senators remain who have not endorsed marriage equality, Sens. Mark Pryor (AR), Joe Manchin (WV), and Mary Landrieu (LA). Landrieu has explained that her personal views have evolved, but she is withholding her support because she’s “looking at the people of Louisiana trying to represent their interests.”

Only three to go. Keep up the pressure – it’s working.
