Video: PA Democrats say Gov. Corbett is on wrong side of public opinion, history

by Jeremy Hooper

With marriage equality grabbing daily headlines in his state, Pennsylvania's Republican governor has been noticeably mealy-mouthed about where he personally stands. The local Democrats have noticed, and they are calling on him to either own his past comments on the matter or (preferably) do the right thing and announce his support for equality:

It's an odd time to be a Republican executive in a moderate state. It's also a really good time for a principled leader to make a positive change from the contrived right/left gridlock that has come to define this issue.

Corbett in PA? Christie in NJ? Martinez in NM? All have a chance to be change agents who could help create a new GOP. It's up to them.
