San Diego Republican Mayor Reverses his Position on Gay Marriage.

San Diego's Republican Mayor, Jerry Sanders, abruptly reversed his public opposition to same-sex marriage on Wednesday after revealing his daughter and close family friends were gay.

He also signed a City Council resolution supporting a legal fight to overturn California's prohibition on same-sex marriages, which he previously said he would veto.

Sanders, a former police chief, told reporters at the press conference that he could no longer back the position he had taken during his election campaign two years ago, which was that he favored civil unions and domestic parnership, but not marriage rights for homosexual couples.

I was so touched by this press conference, that I felt I needed to share it with everyone.
