We Take This Break to Bring You
... important news from the Boston of the West Coast, San Francisco. San Francisco's Mayor Christian Bale, I mean Gavin Newsom, is considering running up against Ahnold to become California's next Governor. Now, normally this wouldn't garner mention on Ryan's Take, this being a blog dedicated to Massachusetts politics, but hopefully readers will remember that Mayor Newsom was the one who courageously stood up for marriage equality and issued marriage licenses to same-sex couples until the courts told him he could no longer do so. California has since voted to legalize marriage equality twice, something Ahnold has twice vetoed. Wouldn't it be ironic if Newsom were to win, so he could finish the job and sign a bill that would legalize marriage-equality in America's most populated and influential state?
