February 14, 2014 (Alexandria, Va.) – Former Lieutenant Governor and congressional candidate Don Beyer praised U.S. District Judge Arenda Wright Allen’s ruling that Virginia’s 2006 same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional.

“This is a historic ruling and in keeping with the progressive road our nation is on,” Beyer said. “It’s appropriate that this decision came on the eve of Valentine’s Day: all Virginians should have the right to marry the person they love.”
