President Obama supports pro-marriage equality ballot initiatives

Neal Broverman reports at the Advocate:

According to Paul Bell, press secretary for Obama’s re-election efforts in the northwestern state, “While the president does not weigh in on every single ballot measure in every state, the president believes in treating everyone fairly and equally, with dignity and respect. Washington’s same-sex marriage law would treat all Washington couples equally, and that is why the Presdient supports a vote to approve Referendum 74.”

Mainers United has released a message identical to the one above for Maine’s Question 1, as has supporters for Maryland’s Question 6 and the opposition “good guys” working against Minnesota’s anti-gay ballot measure.
