The other day it was reported that the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky has joined the campaign "Mayors for the Freedom to Marry". Today, another mayor was added to the list since Mitch Landrieu, the mayor of New Orleans, signed the declaration in support of marriage equality.

Landrieu had supported civil unions but had not yet taken a stand for the right to equal marriage.

More than 500 people are already part of this movement, see the full list here: http://www.freedomtomarry.org/pages/mayors-for-the-freedom-to-marry

A challenge against the non-recognition of out-of-state same-sex marriages was launched in Louisiana, the case is still awaiting trial in federal court.
