Did Maggie Backfire In Maryland?

One Maryland state Senator says he may have changed his mind after hearing the testimony of Maggie Gallagher and other anti-gays yesterday. But not in the direction intended.
Baltimore County Sen. James Brochin found the testimony Tuesday by opponents of gay marriage "troubling," and said this morning that he may support the bill. The Baltimore County Democrat had previously said he was against same-sex marriage. "The demonization of gay families really bothered me," Brochin said. "Are these families going to continue to be treated by the law as second class citizens?" The change adds Brochin to a group of six other senators who have either not decided how they are going to vote or declined to declare their intentions publicly, according to a Sun review. (See list of Senators' positions after the jump.) Twenty senators have said they will support the bill; 24 votes are needed for passage.
