TEXAS: State Democratic Party Adds Marriage Equality To Official Platform

After yesterday's post about Montana, I got numerous emails alerting me that the Texas Dems had just done the same. The Dallas Voice has the text of the platform plank:
Texas Democrats join President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in calling for and affirming equal rights including marriage equality for all Americans. We, along with our President and Vice President, recognize that same sex marriages should be valid and legal in America. Texas Democrats support President Obama and the United States Justice Department in recognizing that the Federal Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional and in refusing to defend DOMA in any Federal Court proceeding. We call for the total repeal of DOMA.
