Day 596

1/ Chuck Schumer promised a Senate vote on protecting same-sex marriage in the coming weeks whether or not there are 10 Republicans votes to pass it. Several GOP senators have already publicly expressed support, including Susan Collins, Rob Portman, and Thom Tillis, while Lisa Murkowski hasn’t committed either way. Ron Johnson, meanwhile, said he wouldn’t support the bill, despite saying earlier this year he saw “no reason to oppose” it. Johnson added that he believes the Supreme Court case giving same-sex couples the right to marry was “wrongly decided.” And, Ted Cruz said he’d vote against the bill to codify same-sex marriage protections into federal law. The House passed legislation to protect same-sex marriage in July, with support from 47 House Republicans. (Politico / Bloomberg)
