New Mexico Governor Won't Push Anti-Marriage Equality Amendment

Take a lesson Utah. New Mexico's governor Susana Martinez says she won't push for a constitutional amendment to stop gay couples from marrying after her state's supreme court ruled in favor of marriage equality last month, reversing her earlier stance that it should be put on the ballot .

“I think what I said before was that yes, the people should have decided on it, but the Supreme Court has decided,” she said, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican. “And it’s now the law of the land...the Supreme Court has spoken.”

Nevertheless, state senator Bill Sharer has proposed an amendment limiting marriage in the state to opposite-sex couples. But Martinez's reversal definitely tips the scales in our favor.
