New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg traveled down to Baltimore's Harbor East neighborhood Friday to urge passage of same-sex marriage when Marylanders go to the polls this election.
Bloomberg joined Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake at a press event at the Four Seasons Hotel.
"When two people commit their lives to each other, government has no right standing in their way," Bloomberg said.
Bloomberg, a graduate of Johns Hopkins University, recently donated $250,000 to the Marylanders for Marriage Equality campaign. Two years ago, he helped support the effort to pass gay marriage in New York.
