Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) today said that she personally supports same-sex marriage but that until the voters of her state also evolve, she won’t be be backing the issue with her Senate vote.
Landrieu told CNN National Political Correspondent Jim Acosta in an interview Friday that she personally believes “people should love who they love and marry who they want to marry,” but that her obligation rests with the people of Louisiana who elected her. “My state has a very strong constitutional amendment not only against gay marriage but against gay partnerships. So I’m looking at the people of Louisiana trying to represent their interests,” she said.
Thanks for nothing, Senator.
