The U.S. Supreme Court said on Monday that they will not hear cases in Oklahaoma, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin and Indiana that seek to keep their gay marriage bans in place. That means gay couples will now be able to marry legally in those five states, and even more could soon follow.
If you’re wonder when and how the Supreme Court of the United States is going to weigh in on the state-to-state gay marriage bans, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says you should have your eyes on the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.
In a new television commercial, a GOP Senate candidate from Oregon is coming out in favor of same-sex marriage. Dr. Monica Wehby released an ad Tuesday in which stands up for the gay plaintiffs who have sued the state over its gay marriage ban.
You can watch the ad for Monica Wehby’s Senate campaign here:
“My opponent keeps trying to paint me as an extreme right-wing Republican, and that’s actually not who I am,” she said in a phone interview. “I’m a very independent-minded person, like our state. I’ve always felt government should stay out of it. This isn’t a change in thought for me at all.”
The man who appears in the ad with Dr. Wehby is Ben West, a plaintiff in the lawsuit that successfully struck down the Oregon gay marriage ban earlier this year.
