Hours after President Obama announced a similar change in policy, Sen. Jack Reed said Wednesday that he has decided to come out in favor of marriage equality.

“I’ve been thinking and deliberating about this for many, many months,” said Reed. “I believe it’s appropriate to support same-sex marriage and as a result to support the Respect for Marriage Act.”
