Love wins: Senate passes bill to protect same

The Senate on Tuesday approved the Respect for Marriage Act, a historic bipartisan measure to protect same-sex and racial marriages.

the vote was 61-36.

All members of the Democratic caucus voted in favor of the legislation, and the same 12 Republicans who supported it earlier this month for a procedural vote also supported it.
