Democrats Take the New Hampshire House, Dashing Marriage Equality Repeal HopesThe hopes of activists advocating for repeal of New Hampshire’s gay marriage law were dashed on Election Night as Democrats regained control of the House.

As early as July, outgoing House Speaker Bill O’Brien said he would make another attempt to repeal the law if he returned as speaker.

“If our families are weak, then we’ll never be able to have final fiscal responsibility, because if government needs to step up for weakened families then there’s going to be an unlimited call on government resources. One of the things that makes our families strong is a traditional definition of marriage and I firmly believe that,” O’Brien said during an appearance on New Hampshire Public Radio’s the Exchange.
