Gay Marriage Coming For Rhode Island?

R.I – Marriage Equality Rhode Island has received pledges from all Democratic and Independant Governor hopefuls that they will support and fight for Gay Marriage.. no word yet from Republican hopefuls of course.

Being the 2nd to last New England state to not allow same-sex unions (Maine), Rhode Island has been pushing hard not to be left out of the human-rights battle. And now Marriage Equality Rhode Island has released that Attorney General Patrick Lynch and General Treasurer Frank Caprio (Democrats), and former Sen. Lincoln Chafee (Independent) have all signed on with support. They are expected to make their own announcements about their pro-LGBT views on March 3rd.

Rhode Island has struggled with this issue, as current Governor Carcieri has been a major opponent of human-rights. However Carcieri has now run out his time and won’t be able to run again.
