Brown, Warren react to Obama’s support of gay marriage

US Senator Scott Brown, an opponent of gay marriage when he was in the Massachusetts Legislature, said in a statement today that gay marriage is “settled law” in Massachusetts and should be decided by the states instead of the federal government.

“Regardless of how states choose to define marriage, Senator Brown believes all people should be treated with dignity and respect,” his spokeswoman, Marcie Kinzel said in an emailed statement. “Right now, Americans of all backgrounds desperately need jobs, and that is what Senator Brown is focused on.”
