JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KSDK) - Ed Martin, chairman of the Missouri Republican Party, released the following statement Wednesday, following decisions by the Supreme Court about the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8 in California:
"While many may debate the outcome of the decision Wednesday by the U. S. Supreme Court, the Court did echo supporting the will of the people in their decision state by state. Missourians have already clearly spoken. Citizens of the Show Me State decided to make clear their stance on marriage and its definition in our State Constitution. We will continue to remain vigilant of this administration's activism with regard to forcing policy upon states and organizations that have already made their positions clear."
