WEDDING MARCH

Delaware Poised To Be The Next State To Approve Gay Marriage

The wedding march continues. Legislators in Delaware are preparing today to introduce a bill to approve marriage equality.

Pretty much the entire political leadership of the state is lined up in support of the legislation, and with Democrats controlling both houses of the legislature and the governorship, prospects look bright.

Civil unions only became legal in the state last year, but with the momentum on the side of marriage equality, Delaware looks well positioned to become the tenth state to approve same-sex marriage.

It probably hasn’t hurt that Vice President Joe Biden, who represented Delaware in the Senate for 36 years, was one of the first high-profile national figures to come out for marriage equality.

Joe knows his state, and if can push his boss into supporting marriage equality, he can probably help out back at home too. He’s also got inside help: his son Beau is the state attorney general and one of the key supporters of the new legislation.

      New Jersey would have been the next state to approve gay marriage except Governor
      Chubsy Ubsy vetoed it.
