Florida Democratic Party Statement on Today's Supreme Court Decisions
Tallahassee, FL — Today, in response to the Supreme Court's rulings that the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional and clearing the way for marriage equality in California, Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant released the following statement:
"As Democrats, we are committed to full equality for every American. Today, the Supreme Court moved us further toward that goal. All married couples will now enjoy the federal benefits and protections they have been wrongfully denied for years. There is still a long road ahead before we achieve full equality for GLBT Americans, and here in Florida we stand committed to continue this fight."
