Larsen Statement on Marriage Equality

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, today issued the following statement on marriage equality following President Obama's statement that he supports same-sex marriage.

"President Obama today arrived at a belief that millions of Americans, including myself, share. Marriage is a civil right that all Americans--gay or straight--should be able to enjoy," Larsen said. "I am proud to be from Washington, which has helped lead the way in extending marriage rights for all. I look forward to the day when every American is able to marry the person that they love."

Larsen advocated for the end of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and is a co-sponsor of the Respect for Marriage Act, which would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.
