Montana Senator Max Baucus Endorses Marriage Equality

After the Montana Democratic Party platform convention unanimously endorsed marriage equality last Saturday, Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) announced he now supports same-sex marriage rights. The Senate Finance Chairman tweeted that he is “Very proud of @MtDems’ vocal support for ‪#marriageequality‬ over the weekend,” and a spokeswoman confirmed to ThinkProgress that the unverified Twitter account is indeed that of the Senator. Baucus also said in a statement that adults “should be free to choose who they spend their lives with a committed relationship.”
