Log Cabin Republicans President Charles Moran released the following statement:

“Twelve Senate Republicans were the key to breaking a key procedural hurdle voting to move forward with the Respect for Marriage Act in the U.S. Senate today. By advancing this legislation, these forward-thinking Republicans are aligning our laws with not only where the vast majority of Americans are, but the majority of Republicans too. There is still more legislative work to be done to get this bill signed into law, but between these twelve Senate Republicans and the 47 House Republicans who voted for the Respect for Marriage Act earlier this year, we’re confident it will get done.”
