Gov. Walker, challenger Burke react to gay marriage ruling

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) ---  Former Trek Bicycle Executive and Democratic Candidate for Governor Mary Burke released the following statement today, following Judge Crabb's ruling on Wisconsin's gay marriage ban.

"Today is a great day for Wisconsin and committed couples who love each other across the state. Every loving couple should have the freedom to marry whomever they choose, and the fact that this freedom is now available in Wisconsin is something we all can and should be proud of."

Friday night, Governor Scott Walker's spokesperson Laurel Patrick sent this reaction statement:

"It is correct for the Attorney General, on this or any other issue, to defend the constitution of the state of Wisconsin, especially in a case where the people voted to amend it."
