Proposed: State Dems to reaffirm pot, gay marriage platform
MADISON (AP) — Wisconsin Democrats are scheduled to approve a platform that reaffirms the party’s current support for legalizing gay marriage and recreational marijuana use.
The party on Tuesday released its proposed platform and resolutions that were to be voted on by delegates at the Wisconsin Democratic Party convention which begins June 6 in Wisconsin Dells.
Wisconsin Republicans drew heat at their convention last month for a proposed resolution to affirm the state’s right to secede from the union. That was voted down.
The platform represents core beliefs of the party and its candidates, but it would take a change of state laws to do much of what Democrats will vote to support at their convention. Republicans currently control the Legislature and the governor’s office.
