Exciting news - President Obama just announced that he supports marriage equality for same-sex couples! This is a historic moment, and I hope that New Hampshire can serve as a model for the rest of the country in acknowledging and celebrating marriage equality.

I thank President Obama for standing up for marriage equality and for what is right. So proud that New Hampshire has been a leader in this fight and that all Granite Staters are free to marry.
— Maggie Hassan, Gubernatorial candidate
Wonderful to hear that President Obama supports what we in #NH were proud to establish in 2009 and defend this year, #MarriageEquality
— Jackie Cilley, Gubernatorial candidate
Great political courage, and a wonderful statement of support for the American ideal of freedom. New Hampshire Governor John Lynch did it three years ago, Vice President Joe Biden did it three days ago, and now President Barack Obama. “…with liberty and justice for all!”
— Jim Splaine, former state Representative
President Obama’s statements this afternoon in support of marriage equality mark a watershed moment in this deeply important civil rights issue. As the highest-ranking openly gay member of the Democratic National Committee, serving as Vice-Chair, I applaud the President’s support for marriage equality and wholeheartedly stand with him and the countless others across New Hampshire and the nation who have fought to ensure equal rights for all.
— Ray Buckley, New Hampshire Democratic Party chair
