Pro-Gay Candidates Lose Key Rhode Island Primaries

Ad Feedback

Pro-gay marriage candidates in Rhode Island lost big in five key Democratic primaries on Wednesday.

The Providence Phoenix reported that only one out of six of the candidates who support same-sex marriage claimed victory.

The one win played out when pro-same-sex marriage candidate Adam Satchell defeated Sen. Michael Pinga.

Gay marriage backers David Gorman, Gene Dyszlewski, Laura Pisaturo, Lewis Pryeor, and Robert DaSailva all lost.

Last minute fund-raising from Colorado Technology magnate Tim Gill failed to make a difference in the races. 

Gill has been funding state-level legislative races in support of pro-gay marriage candidates.
Meanwhile, polls suggest a majority Rhode Island voters support same-sex nuptials.
