Spitzer Plans Expanded Protections

New York gubernatorial candidate Eliot Spitzer plans to include same-sex couples in domestic violence legislation, according to his running mate, David Paterson. Spitzer has already pledged to legalize gay marriage if elected, although as Attorney General he was forced to argue against it in court cases. Spitzer is a shoo-in for the November election, drawing massive support from both major parties, as well as the endorsement of major gay organizations. Things look very promising for the Democrats to retake the governor’s mansion in several key states.
