Sen. Susan Collins becomes fourth GOP US Senator to support marriage equality

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 At 7.41.12 PmOn the same day that the Human Rights Campaign endorsed the moderate Republican for re-election, US Senator Susan Collins became the fourth GOP member of the upper chamber to endorse marriage equality:

Collins joins colleagues Rob Portman (R-OH), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Mark Kirk (R-IL) on the right side of history. She also joins her fellow senator from Maine, Independent Angus King (who caucuses with the Democrats), on the side of basic fairness.

But mostly Collins joins the inevitable, a place where most all of her GOP colleagues, future if not current, will be in just a few years time. Always good to get their first. Or fourth, as it were.
