According to Amanda Terkel at The Huffington Post, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has added his support to including marriage equality as a plank of the 2012 Democratic Party platform, pointing out that “obstacles on the federal level stand in the way of full equality for all New Yorkers.” Several other prominent Democrats have joined Freedom To Marry’s “Democrats: Say I Do” campaign, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Reps. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) and Keith Ellison (D-MN), Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), and former Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI).
