DescriptionChalk up another one.

Newly elected Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) announced his support for same-sex marriage on Tuesday, the day the Supreme Court considered the constitutionaly of Proposition 8, California's gay marriage ban.

“Montanans believe in the right to make a good life for their families," he wrote on his Facebook page. "How they define a family should be their business and their business alone. I’m proud to support marriage equality because no one should be able to tell a Montanan or any American who they can love and who they can marry.”

Democratic Sens. Mark Begich (D-AK), Claire McCaskill (MO), Mark Warner (VA) and Jay Rockefeller (WV) also backed gay marriage this week.
