On July 29, 2014, a panel of the U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a ruling from a lower court that struck down Virginia's same-sex marriage ban. As someone whose own marriage was illegal in Virginia until the U.S. Supreme Court opinion in Loving v. Virginia, and voted against the Marshall-Newman amendment, I applaud the Court's ruling.

Today, I commend Governor McAuliffe for ensuring that our Commonwealth continues to take the lead on being the friendliest state in which to do business. It is important that we encourage SWaM businesses to come and invest their time and resources in Virginia. We must continue to level the playing field and be the standard to which other states craft their own compliance measures.

The list is long: Former President George W. Bush (R), President Barack Obama (D), former Gov. Bob McDonnell (R), Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D). Dels. Scott Lingamfelter (R), Rich Anderson (R), Betsy Carr (D), Barbara Comstock (R), Chris Head (R), Charniele Herring (D), Manoli Loupassi (R), Jennifer McClellan (D), Ron Villanueva (R). State Sens. Janet Howell (D), John Edwards (D), Frank Wagner (R), and John Watkins (R). And they all have something in common. You ask, “What is it that these politicians from often polarized political backgrounds have in common?” The answer: These elected officials, as well as First Lady Michelle Obama and others, have led efforts to make the end of homelessness a priority.
