Democratic governor in Delaware supports marriage equality
Delaware’s Democratic Gov. Jack Markell supports legalizing marriage equality in his state. Markell’s spokeswoman says that he supports “gay marriage”, although he believes the state should focus on implementing a same-sex civil union law that took effect in January. Opponents of the civil union legislation in Delaware argued last year that it was a prelude to establishing same-sex marriage, But there are no current proposals in the legislature to do so.
