(HEADLINE USA) – The Senate has announced that it will delay its vote on same-sex marriage until after midterms.
Wisconsin Democrat Sen. Tammy Baldwin, who is the lead sponsor of the bill, announced the delay in voting, Just the News reported. “I’m still very confident that they bill will pass but we will be taking the bill up later, after the election. We will be putting out a joint statement,” said Baldwin.

Democrats planned to hold the vote sooner, apparently under the concern that the Supreme Court would strike down laws that make such marriages legal. The bill, which attempts to codify same sex marriage, cannot get 10 more Republican votes to reach 60 to get the measure passed.
