This could be good, if it isn't just hot air.
Three major candidates running for governor of Rhode Island have promised to support and sign a bill allowing gay marriage if elected. The three men, General Treasurer Frank Caprio and Attorney General Patrick Lynch, both Democrats, and former Senator Lincoln Chafee, an Independent, made the pledge at a Statehouse rally on last week. And Moderate Party candidate Ken Block said through a spokeswoman that he also supports gay marriage.
It seems as though the littlest state is inching ever closer to approving the measure since current governor, Republican Donald Carcieri, cannot run again because of term limits. Carcieri is well-known as being anti-marriage equality.
I would hope that these men will stick to their word; I'm hoping that newly elected House Speaker, and openly gay, Gordon Fox, will work toward making marriage equality the law for everyone.
Keep moving forward, Rhode Island.
