"The American people -- including over 80% of Republicans and even 40% of Democrats -- oppose same-sex marriage. NOM has already proven in races from New York to California that it is a particularly bad idea for Republicans to support gay marriage. The disconnect in Washington stems from politicans who refuse to pay attention to the values of the people they represent. If Mr. Mehlman wishes to help us elect pro-marriage GOP politicians, we welcome his support. If not, we welcome the victories that will come in the battle that must necessarily ensue."

-- National Organization for Marriage head Maggie Gallagher in response to the coming out of GOP strategist and former Bush campaign manager Ken Mehlman.
