Yesterday the New Hampshire's Republican-dominated House of Representatives refused to overturn New Hampshire's marriage equality law. Avlon cheers:

[S]ome legislators were concerned that an ideological over-reach by social conservatives could alienate independent voters—who make up a plurality of registered voters in the Granite State—in the next election. “I am concerned about the message it could sends to Independent voters,” said Schroadter. “I'm a Republican for small government, low taxes, and pro-business initiatives. This [marriage equality] is just one of those issues that government should probably stay away from.”
