Question 6 victory was a team effort

I regret some unintended implications in my quotes in Saturday's story regarding the freedom to marry win in Maryland ("Gay marriage supporters seized victory after tough start," Nov. 10).

Whatever the occasional disagreements, we owe a huge debt of thanks to the local leaders and families, campaign manager Josh Levin and his team, Gov. Martin O'Malley and key lawmakers, Equality Maryland, Human Rights Campaign, the ACLU, the NAACP, Republicans and Democrats, and the many, many volunteers and voices who joined in making the case to voters that led to victory alongside our movement's wins in other states.

Freedom to Marry is proud to have contributed in big ways and small, public and unsung, as part of what we all did right to move Maryland to the right side of history. We all have much to celebrate and lots more still to do.
