Sen. Harry Reid: Democratic Party Platform Will Include Pro-Gay Marriage Plank


Vision to America:

The Democrats’ top leader in Congress said Thursday that the party’s platform will soon include a plank calling for the legalization of gay marriage.

“The president’s in favor of it — I’m sure it will be [included],” said Reid.

Delegates to the Democratic National Convention will meet in Charlotte, N.C., to vote on the party’s platform in early September.

Voters in North Carolina this week approved a state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

And in fact, in all probability, more Democrats in North Carolina supported the marriage protection amendment than opposed it..
