CONCORD, NH – Pointing to Kuster’s crystal-clear support for equality for all citizens, New Hampshire Freedom to Marry Coalition’s board of directors voted unanimously last night to endorse Ann McLane Kuster in her race for New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“Ann McLane Kuster’s uncompromising support for marriage equality and her commitment to working families of all kinds made this an easy decision,” said Mo Baxley, Executive of Director of New Hampshire Freedom to Marry.  “Annie is exactly the kind of leader we need in Washington”

The New Hampshire Freedom to Marry Coalition includes tens of thousands of active supporters in New Hampshire.

“I was proud to be a vocal supporter for passing marriage equality here in New Hampshire and I’ll continue to support marriage equality in Washington,” said Ann McLane Kuster. “We should have less government interference in our personal lives, at both the state and federal levels.”
