(San Antonio, TX) -- Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis wants Texas to end its defense of the ban on gay marriage. She tells the "San Antonio Express-News" people should be allowed to marry regardless of their sexual orientation. The Fort Worth state senator also took her likely opponent in the November general election, State Attorney General Greg Abbott, to task for supporting the state's 2005 ban on gay marriage. Davis adds she'd ask the Texas Legislature to repeal the ban "if it doesn't happen constitutionally."
