Mehlman Urges New Hampshire Republicans To Maintain Marriage Equality

Former RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman is in New Hampshire this week “to urge legislative members of my party to reject” legislation repealing the state’s same-sex marriage law. In an ope-ed in this morning’s Union Leader, Mehlman writes, “It’s time to stand up for individual freedom and liberty, to live by the Golden Rule and to oppose any effort to diminish or strip away individual rights, and to return to the real business of building business, keeping taxes down and growing our economy. ‘Live Free or Die’ should be more than just a slogan.” Mehlman, who came out as gay in 2010, also helped build support for marriage equality among Republicans in New York, helping the state pass marriage equality last year.
