UNDATED (www.incnow.tv) - Hillary Clinton has announced her support for same-sex marriage.

The announcement from the former secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate came in a video posted by a group backing gay rights. Mrs. Clinton’s comments align her with President Obama and Vice President Biden, who’ve also announced their backing of same-sex marriage.

Mrs. Clinton says, “LGBT Americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones. And they are full and equal citizens and they deserve the rights of citizenship. That includes marriage.”

Just last week, former president Bill Clinton wrote an editorial supporting the overturn of the Defense of Marriage Act. That law, which he signed in 1996, requires the Federal Government consider a legal marriage as between a man and a woman.
