Charlestown, Massachusetts – Rep. Ed Markey released the following statement today calling on the Mass. GOP Senate candidates to denounce the Republican National Committee’s unanimous decision to reiterate the party’s opposition to same-sex marriage:

“The Republicans’ shameful decision to set in stone their opposition to the most basic equal rights should be immediately repudiated by the Republicans in this special election. I was proud to vote against the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act in the 1990s, I’m a proud cosponsor of legislation to overturn DOMA today, and in the Senate I will fight for equal rights for all Americans because it’s the right thing to do.
