Brian Brown says if Democratic Party Endorses SSM "Democrats Will Lose Seats"

 

The Hill interviewed our President Brian Brown on the proposal recently endorsed by Nancy Pelosi to include same-sex marriage in the Democratic Party platform:

...“It’s an unmitigated disaster for the Democratic Party,” said Brian Brown, the president of the National Organization for Marriage, which opposes gay marriage. “This may play well in San Francisco, but folks across the country oppose same-sex marriage, including in key swing states.”

Brown said if the Democrats do put gay marriage into the platform, his group would be involved in races across the country pointing out what direction Democrats have chosen to pursue.

“You’ll see Democrats lose seats over it,” he said.

As we've seen in blue state after blue state, many Democrats oppose redefining marriage.
