WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has voiced her support for same-sex marriage.
In a video released Monday by the Human Rights Campaign, Clinton says gays and lesbians are "full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship."
The White House is welcoming Clinton's announcement, which is in line with President Obama's views.
The Republican Party officially opposes same-sex marriage, though several high-profile GOP lawmakers have publicly supported it, including the co-sponsor of the Defense of Marriage Act.
