One hundred and fifty three U.S. mayors for marriage equality: ‘History is going to judge us’

When a coalition of mayors launched a campaign to support marriage equality a month ago, there were about 70 individuals signed on to it. Now, there are 153 involved in Mayors for Freedom to Marry, with the Republican mayor of one of the nation’s largest cities serving as a co-chair. “This is an equality issue, nothing more, nothing less,” San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders (R) told The Huffington Post during a sit-down interview. “History is going judge us 10, 20, 30 years from now. I think it’s going to be very different then. We’re seeing the landscape change dramatically.”
