Mayor Bloomberg Reacts to Preservation of Marriage Equality in New Hampshire

As you may have heard, the New Hampshire House defeated an effort to repeal the right to gay marriage earlier today, by a vote of 211-116. Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York had this to say about this landmark decision by a Republican-led chamber:

“Today’s decisive vote in the New Hampshire State Legislature is a victory for marriage equality everywhere. With over 100 members from each party voting to preserve marriage equality, New Hampshire lawmakers from across the political spectrum made a strong statement that marriage is a basic right. I congratulate New Hampshire for helping ensure that individuals have the right to marry the person they choose.”
