Iowa GOP Co-Chair Cody Hoefert releases statement on yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling

Republican Party of Iowa Co-Chairman Cody Hoefert today released the following statement concerning yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling on the definition of marriage:

“The grassroots Republicans who make up the core of our party have loudly spoken on this issue, and believe marriage is between one man and one woman. As a state party, we will continue to fight for marriage. The Republican Party of Iowa stands firmly behind America’s moral heritage of defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. By refusing the opportunity for five American states the right to respectfully petition the federal government for a legal redress of grievances, the U.S. Supreme Court has committed an egregious act of judicial activism.”
