Washington Republican Senator Steve Litzow has recorded a video explaining why he believes equal marriage rights for same-sex couples are so important.
Watch the video below:
This video was recorded for the Washington United for Marriage (WUM) campaign that aims to preserve the state’s newly enacted marriage equality law that goes before voters in November.
Senator Litzow, of Mercer Island and representing the 41st Legislative District, was one of the first Republicans to sponsor the state’s Marriage Equality Act which was signed into law in February, 2012.
“It seems only fitting to release Steve’s video this week when we all pause to remember that freedom and independence are core principles of our state and our nation,” WUM campaign manager Zach Silk is quoted as saying. “And here in Washington, those basic principles are at risk this November unless voters approve Referendum 74 and affirm our bipartisan marriage law.”
