NY: Joe Bruno Now Supports Same-Sex Marriage
Former New York Senate Majority Leader, Republican Joe Bruno now says that he is a supporter of same-sex marriage. Although Bruno retired from the Senate last year, he continues to be an extremely influential party elder. Therefore, this represents a positive development for marriage equality in the Empire State.
"As a relatively conservative Roman Catholic, I instinctively view marriage as the foundation of the family. However, that view really does conflict with the rights that are afforded all of us, This is America and we have inalienable rights … life is short and we should all be afforded the same opportunities and rights to enjoy it." - Joe Bruno
