Anti-Gay Marriage Push Fails In Colorado County

(AP) Republicans in the home county of GOP Rep. Marilyn Musgrave have balked at supporting her proposal to outlaw gay marriage.

At their assembly earlier this month, Morgan County Republicans fell one vote short of approving a resolution to support the proposed constitutional amendment backed by Musgrave and other Republicans, including President Bush and Sen. Wayne Allard of Colorado.

Among those who didn't vote for the resolution were Musgrave and her husband, who left the assembly early. Her chief of staff, Guy Short, said the resolution would have passed had she and her husband voted or if three unmarked ballots weren't counted.

"The congresswoman has more important things to do than fiddle with spoiled ballots in Morgan County," Short said.
