A large number of high profile Republicans are coming out in support of gay marriage. The group of 80 Republicans is submitting a legal brief to the Supreme Court calling for the legalization of gay marriage. The court is set to decide on California's Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act.
Among the signers is former Coachella valley Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack, former California Gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman and former presidential candidate John Huntsman.
"I'm a little disappointed that it's 80 people who are no longer in office or really don't have a whole lot to lose, but it's a start,"said Gary Costa, Palm Springs LGBT Community Center CEO.
The legal brief will be submitted sometime this week. The last day to submit briefs to the supreme court is Thursday and the court is set to hear arguments on these same sex marriage cases next month.
