“Governor John Lynch...has said he opposes same-sex marriage...[the same-sex marriage bill is] a big win for Democratic Chairman Ray Buckley, and a New Hampshire politico describes to me ‘insane behind-the-scenes wrangling,’ with two votes switching in the last 24 hours.”
POLITICO On The Lynch-Buckley Same-Sex Marriage Feud
New Hampshire Senate Passes Gay Marriage Bill
April 29, 2009
How fast is this moving?
The New Hampshire State Senate just passed a bill making same-sex marriage law -- by a single vote, 13-11.
The same bill already passed the House, and now goes to the desk of Governor John Lynch, a Democrat who has said he opposes same-sex marriage, but hasn't said how he'd act on the legislation.
Now Hampshire reports that it's a big win for Democratic Chairman Ray Buckley, and a New Hampshire politico describes to me "insane behind-the-scenes wrangling," with two votes switching in the last 24 hours.
