Idaho GOP Lauds Gay Marriage Fight

The Idaho Republican Party has issued a statement commending GOP Gov. Butch Otter and Attorney General Lawrence Wasden for continuing the state’s court fight against same-sex marriage. The party’s statement says its platform calls on Idaho officials to “use all means possible to prevent expansion of the definition of marriage beyond that of a bond between one man and one woman.” The statement says the party and its nominees “believe that the expressed will of Idaho voters in amending our Constitution must be respected,” referring to the 2006 vote that added the ban on same-sex marriage to the Idaho Constitution/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.
