A new Republican senator has decided to support gay marriage in Washington. Senator Cheryl Pflug joins Senator Steve Litzow.
Pflug already supported LGBT rights in the past in particular as a voter for domestic-partnership benefits and she says she is a "longtime supporter of human equality".
"I do not feel diminished by having another human being experience the same freedom I am entitled to exercise. I would feel diminished by denying another human the ability to exercise those same rights and freedoms."
Let's continue to cross our fingers to have more Republican senators supporting marriage equality because it would seem the state House will pass the law but that will be complicated in the Senate.
