Politico: NY Results a Reminder of Pro-Marriage GOP Support Even in Blue States

 

Politico's Maggie Haberman on the results of the NY primaries:

"...The two Senators, Roy McDonald and Stephen Saland, both representing more conservative areas north of New York City, were within a few hundred votes of their primary challengers. McDonald had been watched closely, but Saland's close race came as a surprise."... the other two races are now likely to come down to absentee ballots. And they're a reminder that the GOP base remains in a different place on same-sex marriage than some of the party's prominent fundraisers and former officials, even in a blue state like New York."
