Del. Gov. Supports Gay Marriage

Posted: Updated:

 

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Democratic Gov. Jack Markell supports legalizing gay marriage in Delaware.
After Maryland's governor signed a bill this week allowing gay marriage in that state, a spokeswoman for Markell said Friday that he supports gay marriage in Delaware, although he believes the state should focus for now on implementing a same-sex civil union law that took effect in January.
Opponents of the civil union legislation argued last year that it was a prelude to establishing same-sex marriage in Delaware.
