Johnson announces support for same-sex marriage

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Sen. Tim Johnson has announced that he has decided to support same-sex marriage legislation.

Johnson released a statement Monday saying that after "lengthy consideration," his views on marriage equality legislation have evolved.

Johnson's announcement comes days after two of his colleagues offered their support to same-sex marriage. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, a Democratic senator from North Dakota, and Sen. Joe Donnelly, a Democratic senator from Indiana, say they support same-sex marriage.
