Another Marriage Result
Tennesse, like Virginia, has voted to ban same-sex marriage. It looks like more than 80 percent have voted for the ban, similar to the 86 percent who supported a similar ban in neighboring MIssissippi in 2004. The result does not surprise, as both Senate candidates supported the ban in a conservative Southern state. Traditional marriage amendments remain undefeated on the state level. I would have been much more interested to see how Illinois voted, had that initiative gained enough signatures to make it on the ballot.
