McMahon Loses Family Institute Endorsement
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon’s change of heart over the Defense of Marriage Act forced the Family Institute to have its own change of heart.
During and after the first televised U.S. Senate debate Sunday, McMahon said she would vote to repeal DOMA. She said her opinion of the law has changed over the past two years, but she couldn’t pinpoint exactly when.
The comment has Peter Wolfgang, executive director of the Family Institute, saying his initial endorsement is no longer accurate.
“I’m still voting for Linda because her victory could mean the end of Roe v. Wade,” Wolfgang wrote on his Facebook page. “But because Linda McMahon flip-flopped and now supports a repeal of DOMA—the one federal law that stops Connecticut’s judicially imposed re-definition of marriage from being imposed on the rest of the nation—my September 18th endorsement of her is no longer accurate.”
