GOP Leaders Look to States to Block Gay Marriage

"House Republicans haven't yet coalesced around a strategy to counter the Supreme Court's decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act, with one member of the party's conservative wing talking up a doomed effort to amend the Constitution while leadership seems resigned to leave the issue to the states," Roll Call reports.

Gawker: "There are, in total, 29 U.S. Senators and Representatives who changed their positions regarding same-sex marriage since it was first voted on in 1996. Of those 29 politicians who no longer support DOMA, 24 signed an anti-DOMA amicus brief earlier this year. Still in office are 43 members of Congress who supported DOMA and continue to do so, as well as 31 politicians who always opposed the measure."
