“Today’s ruling affirms a clear constitutional principle: that same-sex couples must have access to the same rights, privileges and benefits afforded to everyone else, and that includes marriage.

“Nearly 20 year ago, I opposed discrimination by voting against the Defense of Marriage Act. Today, in 2015, I’m happy that our friends, neighbors, and family members in Wisconsin and across the country will always have the right to marry the one they love, no matter where they call home. Discrimination has no place in our laws.

“This victory is a credit to the members and allies of the gay community who never gave up – who helped change both laws and minds to affirm America’s fundamental beliefs in equality and love.

“We know the fight for equality isn’t over yet, but together we’ll continue to strive for equal standing, under the law, for all Americans.”
