"I'm proud to join Freedom to Marry's 'Democrats: Say, I Do' campaign. Along with the more than 20,000 Americans who have already signed the online petition, I call on the Democratic Platform Committee to affirm the freedom to marry in our party's national convention platform this September. Any Democratic statement of core beliefs about the importance of families must include all our families, gay and straight. Our party has a long tradition of leading the charge on important questions of justice. Now is the time for the Democratic Party to stand up for the rights of same-sex couples and their families."

-- New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen announcing her support for Freedom to Marry's push to include a pro-marriage equality plank in the Democratic Party platform this election cycle.
