Quote of the Day: Maryland Sen. Ron Young
“There are times when you have to do what is right. We are here not just be representatives, we are here to be leaders. If I lose an election over this vote, so what?”
- Maryland Sen. Ron Young, a Democrat who narrowly defeated notoriously anti-gay state Republican Sen. Alex Mooney in last November’s election, and last night cast a vote to end marriage discrimination. The Maryland Senate passed marriage equality 25-21 with Sen. Young’s vote.
