The Iowa Republican: As goes Maine, so too, I hope, goes Iowa

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Voters in Maine overturned legislation yesterday that would have
allowed same-sex marriage. Voters rejected same-sex marriage
52 to 47 percent, despite being outspent two-to-one. The saying "as
goes Maine, so goes the nation" might be a predictor for how Iowa
voters would chose if our legislators would give the citizens a chance
to vote on this issue. Instead, the Democrat controlled legislature
gets a lot of its campaign funding from the liberally left, which
supports same-sex marriage. Iowa voters will have a chance in a year
to do some voting that could have an effect on this issue in the
Hawkeye State. We can vote to not retain Iowa Supreme Court judges who
voted for the plaintiffs in Varnum v. Brien. Concerned Iowa voters can
also vote for social conservatives to serve in the House, Senate and
Governor's offices, and turn out those state legislators who have
supported the court's ruling and who have effectively blocked efforts
to bring this matter before the citizens of the state.
