UPDATED: No Thanks, Senator Ortman

Sen. Julianne Ortman cast the lone dissenting Republican vote in the Senate Rules Committee Friday morning against the Constitutional Amendment to ban gay marriage.  That’s the kind of leadership we need more of in the Republican caucus.  Kudos to her and Rep. John Kriesel, who has also come out against the amendment.

UPDATE:  Well, Ortman’s willingness to break with her party only goes so far, I guess. When push came to shove on final approval of the amendment,  Ortman walked in lockstep with her party and voted in favor of the amendment.
