IDP Chair Scott Brennan Responds to Historic Supreme Court Marriage Equality Decisions

Posted by

DES MOINES – Iowa Democratic Party Chair Scott Brennan today issued the following statement after the US Supreme Court ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional.

“Today is a great day.  Iowa led the way in marriage equality with the historic Varnum decision in 2009, and today, the thousands of gay and lesbian couples who have been married in the last four years will have their love and commitment recognized by the Federal government.  We know that after today’s ruling anti-gay forces are going to try even harder to take away the rights of LGBT Iowans. But the Iowa Democratic Party is the only party in the state that has fought to protect marriage equality, and we will never back down from the fight to protect the rights and freedoms of every Iowan.”
