“Montanans believe in the right to make a good life for their families,” Tester wrote on his Facebook page. “How they define a family should be their business and their business alone. I’m proud to support marriage equality because no one should be able to tell a Montanan or any American who they can love and who they can marry.”
Sens. Mark Warner, D-Va., Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., Jay Rockefeller, D-W.V., Tim Johnson, D-S.D. and Mark Begich, D-Alaska, all endorsed same-sex marriages earlier this week.
