Gay Marriage Likely To Stay In Iowa



Bookmark and Share

Same-sex marriage might be here to stay in Iowa.
 
Voters decided Tuesday to retain a state Supreme Court justice who participated in the landmark 2009 ruling that made Iowa the first Midwestern state to allow gay marriage. Their vote defeated a conservative campaign to oust him.
 
And voters rejected the Republican Party's bid to take control of the Iowa Senate, where conservatives hoped to pass a long-stalled constitutional amendment asking voters to define marriage to be between one man and one woman.
 
Instead, Iowans re-elected Democratic Senate Majority Leader Michael Gronstal of Council Bluffs, who has single-handedly blocked that amendment for three years. In all, the results from Tuesday's election fortified Iowa's status as one of the earliest states to adopt gay marriage.
