NASHUA, N.H. -- In fewer than two weeks, the New Hampshire primary season will have come to a close, and the presidential candidates will have fled the state like migrating birds. But many eyes around the country will remain focused on the Granite State as legislators prepare to take up one of the most controversial votes in recent history.
No date has yet been scheduled for the vote on legislation to repeal New Hampshire’s same-sex marriage law, but the state House of Representatives will likely take up the matter in mid-January, soon after the Jan. 10 primary, lawmakers said last week.
The gay marriage issue has been a headlining one in New Hampshire since it was first proposed last year. Presidential hopefuls have weighed in on the matter throughout the campaign season, and national interest groups like Freedom to Marry and the National Organization for Marriage have poured money and resources into their respective sides.
If the state Legislature passes the repeal measure, it will be the first in United States history to recant same-sex marriage rights.
