COLUMBUS, OH — (01-19-22) — Internationally known gay rights activist and named plaintiff in the Supreme Court case that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, Jim Obergefell, announced on Tuesday he’s launching a bid for the Ohio State House.
“I took a history making fight for equal rights all the way to the US Supreme Court and won. I don’t mind being the underdog, and I’m not afraid to take on any issue when it’s the right thing to do.
