The issue of civil unions for same-sex couples is still alive and well in the state of Colorado and it’s getting a push from some important Republicans.
Perry brought this important tidbit to my attention and I wanted to share it with everyone.
Jefferson County attorney Mario Nicolais bills himself as “a hard-core partisan Republican,” which comes as no surprise to any Democrat who saw his recent work on a commission redrawing legislative boundaries.
But Nicolais also serves as the spokesman for a new GOP group called Coloradans for Freedom, formed to serve as a resource for the passage of civil unions.
Their message: Being gay and forming a civil union is a matter of personal freedom consistent with the Republican philosophy of individual liberty. Denver Post
