YEE COMMENDS PRESIDENT ON SUPPORT OF MARRIAGE EQUALITY

SAN FRANCISCO – Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco/San Mateo) issued the following statement after President Barack Obama announced his support for marriage equality:

“Today, President Obama reaffirmed the hope and promise most Americans felt nearly four years ago when he was elected. After yesterday’s disappointing defeats in North Carolina and Colorado, the President still had the political courage to do the right thing and publicly support marriage equality. I commend his leadership and commitment to all Americans, and I look forward to the day when such announcements cease to be viewed as momentous and start being viewed as common sense.”
