Mmmm-boy, nothing like competing for the gay lobby donations…
From the Dispatch:
Both Democratic candidates for the U.S. Senate in 2010 now support gay marriage after Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher changed his opposition to it.
Fisher has joined Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner in supporting marriage equality for gay couples. Fisher previously had supported government recognition of civil unions but opposed granting gay couples the right to marry.
Fisher’s Senate campaign confirmed yesterday that he had switched his position and now supports gay marriage.
“The government should be focused on creating jobs, lowering health-care costs and moving us to alternative energy, instead of trying to stop individuals who want to be in a committed relationship and take responsibility for each other,” Fisher said in a statement.
What do they do…get up in the morning and flip a coin? “Heads, I’m for gay marriage; tails, I’m against it.”
