    “It can happen here in Delaware and it can happen this year,” Markell told the audience tonight. “But it will only happen if you do your part to make it happen.”

    Kudos to Governor Markell for this simple yet profound statement to make everyone aware that it’s their participation that is required for civil rights equality.

    Assuming this passes this year, what is the status of marriage equality in New Jersey, where there is court case pending as well as an attempt to overturn the Governor’s veto and a movement to put it on the ballot? Assuming over the next year or two marriage equality comes to both DE and NJ, that will likely put a lot of pressure on legislators in Pennsylvania who will be almost surrounded by marriage equality jurisdictions (except for the bits of the commonwealth that border WV and OH).

    New Jersey is likely to go down the amendment route from everything I’ve seen. They’re trying to find the votes to override a Christie veto but I’m not sure they have them.

    We’re struggling in Illinois and Rhode Island so let’s hope Delaware goes better. I think it will, the demographics appear to be more on our side than in the other states.

    I WAS THERE!! it was sweltering but so much energy! A lot of Delawareans are apathetic they won’t completely support yet won’t step in our way. Some republican legislators are so long settled in their chairs they are afraid or determined not to vote yes to this…

    It will pass i’m sure- but like Gov. said everyone needs to get involved!
