North Carolina Voters Approve Same-Sex Marriage Ban

"While the passage of tonight's amendment is disappointing, it does not erase the incredible progress that gay and lesbian couples have made under the President's leadership," Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in a statement. "From putting an end to the legal defense of the Defense of Marriage Act in the courts and endorsing legislation to repeal it, to making sure that same-sex couples have equal hospital visitation and medical decision-making rights and extending key benefits to the same-sex partners of federal employees, we have taken great strides forward. Same-sex marriage is currently legal in six states (Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York) and the District of Columbia.
