Friendly Voices - Lincoln Chafee

"I served the residents of Rhode Island as both Mayor of Warwick and a United States Senator, and in that time I have dealt with my share of controversial issues. I have seen people of diverse backgrounds and divergent political affiliations come together to do what is right when the best interests of our state's citizens were at stake. Rhode Island legislators should follow in the footsteps of our fellow New England states and be true to our pioneering history of tolerance by advancing a marriage equality bill. But for that to happen, all of us in Rhode Island who believe in full equality need to do our part by voicing support for same-sex marriage loudly and clearly." - Former GOP Rhode Island Sen. Lincoln Chafee, the only Republican senator who supported marriage equality in 2006, when he was defeated in his reelection bid. Chafee has announced his plan to run for governor of Rhode Island in 2010.
