State of Indiana Archives: on Civil Rights


Joe Donnelly: Opposes same sex marriage

The President's support of same sex marriage is forcing Indiana politicians to make their feelings known on the issue and it's a problem for some Indiana Democrats. Same sex marriage is not a winning issue in Indiana.

Republican opposition to same sex marriage is shared by Democrat Joe Donnelly. Nevertheless, look for Democratic candidates to reach out to gay voters with calls for a new hate crime laws and other positions that are less polarizing than the support of same sex marriage.
