The Supreme Court's rulings on same-sex marriage are barely a month old, but they have generated a wave of lawsuits and political battles as gay-rights supporters continue their quest to hoist the rainbow flag in every state.
Eight years after Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said the push for legalizing gay marriage was "too much, too fast, too soon," the Democratic Party will make history Tuesday when it is expected to be the first major party to endorse gay marriage in its platform.
Most gay-marriage battles now will be in "more conservative states, where we fully expect to prevail," Frank Schubert, political director of the National Organization for Marriage, said Wednesday.
"A couple of pitched battles remain — especially in Illinois," he said, but "we are working hard with African-American pastors to preserve marriage" as well as working with allies to respond to all court battles and campaigns.
