  •  wow! what a great article (0+ / 0-)

    clearly it's very fertile soil without anyone politicking.  we could lose 5 democratic votes at both levels and it would still pass.  and a republican state senator has already announced he is voting for marriage equality - so we could lose 6 democratic senators - and i don't think we would.

    and there will be politicking.  NOM is lining up on one side.  we haven't even seen who is lining up on the other side, but don't expect silence.

    i think the Governor and businesses that support marriage equality will be powerful - as well as the same organizations that defeated the amendment last year.

    and as everywhere else in the country - the population becomes less homophobic (though not necessarily the electorate) every cycle so the reps and senators have less to fear each year.
