Another Equality-Supporting Republican Wins In New York

The National Organization for Marriage has been boasting that it successfully impacted the Republican primaries in New York, challenging several state senators who had voted for marriage equality. It turns out, it was only victorious in one of the many races. Today, Sen. Stephen Saland (R), whose race was originally too close to call, emerged victorious after the absentee ballots were all counted. NOM has no real hope of overturning marriage equality in New York, and this race proves that it isn’t even very effective at scaring Republicans into opposing LGBT rights.
