Sen. Heitkamp Issues Statement Supporting Marriage Equality

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp released a statement Friday morning regarding her position on marriage equality, becoming the latest Democratic Senator to publicly support Gay Marriage.

"In speaking with North Dakotans from every corner of our great state, and much personal reflection, I have concluded the federal government should no longer discriminate against people who want to make lifelong, loving commitments to each other or interfere in personal, private, and intimate relationships."  

"I view the ability of anyone to marry as a logical extension of this belief. The makeup of families is changing, but the importance of family is enduring."
