NHDP - On Eve of Landmark Supreme Court Case, Granite Staters Reminded of Kelly Ayotte’s Staunch Opposition to Marriage Equality

Concord, N.H. – As the Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments in a landmark marriage equality case tomorrow, Granite Staters are reminded of Kelly Ayotte’s staunch opposition to New Hampshire’s own marriage equality law.
Ayotte has made her opposition to marriage equality clear: “I absolutely support and believe in marriage as between a man and a woman. I do think it’s unfortunate that our state has made a different decision on that. I know that many of you who are out there working at the state level, running for state office. I commend your efforts to repeal that law here in the state of New Hampshire. I think that’s very important.”
Ayotte’s opposition is completely out-of-step with the views of New Hampshire, with polling showing that 75% of Granite Staters support marriage equality (making New Hampshire the most supportive state in the nation).
“Kelly Ayotte’s backward position on marriage equality is just another reminder that she is focused on following her party’s leadership and advancing her national interests, not representing the people of New Hampshire,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. “I’m proud that Granite Staters have made clear that we strongly support the right to marry for all of our citizens, and it’s time for Ayotte to get the message.”
