Gay marriage advocates declare victory in NH
Gay rights advocates revel after NH lawmakers kill measure to repeal same-sex marriage
By The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) ' Gay rights advocates are declaring victory after New Hampshire's failed attempt at repealing its gay marriage law.

Both sides are pledging to continue fighting into the fall elections after the state House voted Wednesday to kill the measure.

The vote ended a push by New Hampshire's new Republican majority to rescind the 2-year-old law. Gay rights supporters say the vote resounds in a region where opponents have concentrated efforts to reverse momentum.

Several states and Washington, D.C., allow gay marriage. New Hampshire's repeal of such a law would have made it the first state to do so by a legislative act.
