Won’t have much time to blog today as I’m heading out of beautiful Southern Utah (great view from my hotel window of the red rock cliffs, though here with a bit of yellowish brown decorated with trees and scrub brush) and off to see my brother and his four boys in Denver, but caught this while having my breakfast and sipping my coffee.
Jim Geraghty reports that James Huffman and Chris Dudley, the Republican candidates for U.S. Senate and Governor, respectively, in Oregon both “support civil unions for gay couples“. That does seem to be an emerging consensus of Republicans in coastal (and some Midwestern) states.
Ten years ago, not many Democrats supported state recognition of such unions. A real sign of progress in America–and the GOP.
