Jon Cooper, a bundler for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, believes President Obama’s announcement supporting gay marriage will make fundraising “immeasurably easier,” according to Capital New York:
“I hadn’t seen any diminution in support for Obama among LGBT donors or progressive donors for that over the past few weeks, despite the previous disappointment not to move forward with the executive order banning LGBT discrimination by federal contractors,” Cooper said. “That being said, I think that this statement by the president expressing his personal support for same-sex marriage is going to make my life immeasurably easier raising money from LGBT donors and progressives in general.”
