US Lawmakers Chime In On Gay Marriage As SCOTUS Hears Oral Arguments


As the Supreme Court hears oral arguments in the case that may clear the way for same-sex marriage across the U.S., many lawmakers took to Twitter to express their support or dissent.

Hillary Clinton changed her Twitter avatar to show her campaign logo with a rainbow pattern.

Republican Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois, who supports gay marriage, also said he hoped that the Supreme Court would strike down state bans.

A few conservatives also published tweets reiterating their opposition to gay marriage.
