Arne Duncan Endorses Marriage Equality

Arne Duncan, President Obama’s Secretary of Education, endorsed marriage equality during an appearance on Morning Joe on Monday following Vice President Joe Biden’s support for the issue. “Yes, I do,” Duncan said in response to a question from Mark Halperin, noting that he had never been publicly asked his opinion on marriage equality. Watch it:

Duncan is the second cabinet official to support same-sex marriage. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan voiced his endorsement in an interview with Metro Weekly’s Chris Geidner in November of 2011.
