CNSNews: Same-Sex Marriage Played Role in NY-9 Upset

 

Penny Star reports:

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) released results of a survey Wednesday that shows that the same-sex marriage law passed recently in New York played a role in the Republican win in the congressional race to replace Anthony Weiner.

... Weprin supported the same-sex marriage law, and voters reacted, according to a survey conducted for NOM.

“This survey demonstrates what many people have been saying for a long time – David Weprin’s vote in favor of same-sex marriage cost him election to the U.S. House,” said Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage. “NOM funded a major independent expenditure campaign in this race and the survey shows that marriage was a major factor in the race and cost Weprin the election.”
