Sen. Portman Now Supports Same-Sex Marriage

NJ writes, “Sen. Rob Portman, the Ohio Republican who was considered a strong prospect as a vice presidential candidate in the last election, has changed his position to support gay marriage, dropping his decades-long opposition after one of his sons said that he is gay. For Portman, the new position is a complete break with his past voting record. As a member of the House, the Ohioan voted for the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996, supported a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage and voted to prevent same-sex couples in Washington, D.C., from adopting children.”
