Montana: Sen. Jon Tester endorses marriage equality

Montana Sen. Jon Tester on Tuesday endorsed same-sex marriage, joining the party’s new public consensus on the issue.

I've admired the manner and directness that Sen. Tester has represented his state for a long time.  I've feel he is a true representative of the independent spirit of his home state.

Sen. Tester joins Sens. Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Mark Warner of Virginia in endorsing same-sex nuptials, and Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia who on Monday pushed the courts to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.
“Montanans believe in the right to make a good life for their families,” Tester wrote on Facebook. “How they define a family should be their business and their business alone. I’m proud to support marriage equality because no one should be able to tell a Montanan or any American who they can love and who they can marry.”
Like McCaskill, Tester just won reelection easily, and won’t face voters until 2018.

Congratulations, Montana.  You have a Senator to be proud of.
