Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on President Obama's Historic Announcement Supporting Marriage Equality

Today is a proud day for all Americans who believe every adult is entitled to marry the person they love. President Obama becomes the first sitting president in American history to have the courage to support the freedom to marry for gay couples. In doing so, we all take a huge collective step toward a stronger, more equal, and more inclusive America where all loving families are not only accepted, but celebrated.

Moments like these serve as ample reminder of why we are Democrats and why our Party will continue to lead the way forward, always building a more perfect union for all Americans.
