Chafee’s inaugural hope

Timothy Kincaid

January 4th, 2011

In his inauguration speech today, onetime Republican Senator and newly elected Independent Governor Lincoln Chafee included the following comments:

And I would hope that Rhode Island will catch up to her New England neighbors and pass a bill to establish marriage equality. I urge our general Assembly to quickly consider and adopt this legislation. When marriage equality is the law in Rhode Island, we honor our forefathers who risked their lives and fortune in the pursuit of human equality.

Yeah, I got to speak to him about a year ago. I thanked him for his support and wished him the best in his run for governor.

I love this guy. I can’t wait for more Independents/Republicans like him to follow.
