Pro-Marriage Candidate Wins Dem Primary in West Virginia

No one else seems to have noticed yet, but Alan Mollohan (D., W. Va.), who twice voted no on a federal marriage amendment and earned a 63 percent approval rating from Human Rights Campaign, was just ousted by a man (Michael Oliverio) who strongly endorses “traditional” marriage. 

In 2009, Oliverio spoke at the West Virginia Family Policy Council’s Pastor’s Briefing:
