Doug Gansler, Maryland’s Attorney General, is running for governor of that state in 2014. Below is one of his campaign ads, which contains a declaration of his fight for marriage equality. This declaration isn’t a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment or some veiled visual reference of a same-sex wedding without mentioning gay rights as we’ve seen in some other videos. This is a talking point that Gansler uses to say why he is a good candidate for governor.
At the :30 mark.
I believe that we are going to see more and more of this type of ad as we go into the 2016 Presidential elections. I think that we will be seeing more and more politicians embracing and proclaiming their support of gay rights not just when they are at a rally for us but also to the general public. Stay tuned.
