Log Cabin Republicans President Charles Moran released the following statement:

“We said at the beginning that this bill was a political stunt by Congressional Democrats to solve a problem that didn’t exist to paint Republicans into a corner – and it didn’t work. We are thankful for the determination of the 47 Republicans who voted in the affirmative in the House. We also look forward to the U.S. Senate taking up this bill after the election, where it will be considered on the merits instead of being used as the Democrats’ political football to distract voters from their leadership failures. In the meantime, we will continue to work with our allies in Congress and candidates that wish to expand growth, opportunity and prosperity for ALL Americans.”
