"One campaign arena where the issue does loom large in 2010, according to Freedom to Marry's communication director Sean Eldridge -- attorney general races across the country. In the wake of Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley's lawsuit over DOMA, activists are injecting the issue into other AG campaigns, looking for candidates who will pledge to pursue similar lawsuits. In New York state's Democratic primary for attorney general, the leading candidates have already pledged to challenge the federal government on DOMA if elected.
We want to see this issue come up in every AG race across the country, "Eldridge said. "What's happening in California is just one of many instances this year where the marriage equiality issue is going to be out there. I think politicians and voters are paying attention."
