Vulnerable Democratic Senators Not Backing Obama On Gay Marriage

Posted by | May 12, 2012 14:52 | Filed under: Top Stories

Senators in touch races or in conservative areas aren’t standing up for marriage equality.

Sens. Jon Tester (Mont.) (pictured, left) and Claire McCaskill (Mo.) (center), the two most vulnerable Democratic senators, have declined to endorse Obama’s call for the legalization of gay marriage.

Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Bob Casey (Pa.) and Bill Nelson (Fla.) (pictured, right), Democrats who have easier races but in states that could become more competitive by November, have also backed away from Obama’s stance.

They all represent states with constitutional amendments or laws banning same-sex marriage.

But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid predicts the party will adopt pro-gay marriage in its platform.
