Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp is doing an about face, on her stance on marriage equality.
Heitkamp says she now supports gay marriage.
Previously, she had taken a neutral stance, calling it a "state issue."
Heitkamp says she could see the divisive issue was disappointing to gay friends.
SEN. Heidi Heitkamp- (D) North Dakota: "It was really a continuing nagging that built into an absolute imperative, for me a moral imperative, that I not be part of discriminating against anyone."
Another Democratic Senator, Joe Donnelly from Indiana, also officially backed gay marriage today.
