Gay marriage is legal in the United States of America, and 63% of all Americans support it.
It was still a debatable issue ten years ago among Democrats, aside from that in 2019, 79% of them support gay couples, marriage.
This problem played a big part in the Democratic primary for Delaware’s House of Representatives 27th district race. Eric Morrison defeated Earl Jacques in a debate where the central issue was about gay rights, on15th September.
Jacques voted against same-sex marriage, and he rejected to vote on banning gay conversion therapy. Nonetheless, Morrison is a gay drag queen who performs as Anita Mann and really progressive on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender questioning problems.
The contrast between the Democrats’ view came conspicuously when Jacques attacked Morrison last October.
Jacques was judged and criticized by members of Democrats for his comments by House Speaker Pete Schwartzkopf, House Majority Leader Valerie Longhurst, and House Majority Whip Larry Mitchell in a joint statement.
Jacques apologized, he said that it was wrong of him to judge or impose other people’s belief system onto others. He added, his job is to represent all constituents of the 27th District, regardless of gender, race, orientation, or identity.
Morrison appreciated the apology, but he also took the chance to emphasize Jaques being anti-LGBT.
Morrison said, this doesn’t change the fact that Jacques voted against gay marriage in 2013, and refused to vote yes or no on banning gay conversion therapy, those votes hurt him and will always hurt.
On Tuesday, a crowd of voters came out for Morrison, who won against his opponent, Jacques, 61% to 39%.
After his victory was confirmed, on early Wednesday morning he posted on Twitter, he thanked everyone who was supporting him any possible way, big or small. He added it is not over yet, the general election will be on 3rd November, but today we celebrate.
