The group Freedom to Marry, which is pushing for a plank fight on marriage equality at the Democratic National Convention this summer, is putting out a release saying Caroline Kennedy, a major President Obama supporter, is backing ther “Democrats: Say I Do” campaign. Her statement, in the press release, does not mention the plank fight, although it does support marriage equality overall: “There are few things in life more important than being able to marry and build a family with the person you love. This fundamental right should be available to all Americans, including gay and lesbian couples,” said Kennedy. “In our democracy we are fortunate to have elected officials at all levels of government, and courageous jurists who have put their careers on the line, to uphold the promise of equality that is as old as our Constitution, and I hope that many more will follow their example.”
