Columbia Republicans endorse marriage equality
It looks like Columbia may replace Yale as the Gay Ivy. Earlier this week, the Columbia University College Democrats and the Columbia University College Republicans (CUCR) released a joint statement in support of marriage equality, according to the Columbia Spectator. “We, the College Democrats and College Republicans chapters of the Ivy League, endorse marriage equality and challenge our nation’s leaders to join us in defense of marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples,” the statement says. Over 75% of the CUCR board was in favor of the statement, which several members stated was a dynamic shift from the club’s position in past years. We think this is awesome, and we hope the Yale College Republicans will follow suit.
