Perhaps Shelby County in Tennessee started a trend. Joe alerts us to the fact that, in the past weekend, the state Democratic party chapters of both Texas and Montana have endorsed full marriage equality. This is huge. Montana:
And now Texas:
“Texas Democrats join President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in calling for and affirming equal rights including marriage equality for all Americans. We, along with our President and Vice President, recognize that same sex marriages should be valid and legal in America.
“Texas Democrats support President Obama and the United States Justice Department in recognizing that the Federal Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional and in refusing to defend DOMA in any Federal Court proceeding. We call for the total repeal of DOMA.
What’s that? It’s the MAINSTREAM POSITION, folks.
Here’s another stunning turn-around stemming from Obama’s endorsement of marriage equality: a 48-point swing in support for marriage equality in Florida among African-American voters. 48 points!
