DescriptionSen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) announced her newfound support for gay marriage on Friday, leaving just five Democrats in the Senate who have no come out in favor of marriage equality.

Her full statement:

“In speaking with North Dakotans from every corner of our great state, and much personal reflection, I have concluded the federal government should no longer discriminate against people who want to make lifelong, loving commitments to each other or interfere in personal, private, and intimate relationships. I view the ability of anyone to marry as a logical extension of this belief. The makeup of families is changing, but the importance of family is enduring.”
