It’s no surprise, since Obama has already said gays and lesbians should have the right to marry, but now it’s official. The R-74 campaign released this today:

Statement by Paul Bell, Washington Press Secretary, Obama for America:

“While the president does not weigh in on every single ballot measure in every state, the president believes in treating everyone fairly and equally, with dignity and respect.  Washington’s same-sex marriage law would treat all Washington couples equally, and that is why the President supports a vote to approve Referendum 74.”
