Meghan McCain has joined the Leadership Committee of the Young Conservatives for the Freedom to Marry.

“I'm thrilled to join the Young Conservatives for the Freedom to Marry, who believe, as I do, that we don't have to choose between conservatism and marriage for all committed couples,” said McCain in a statement released Thursday. “I look forward to spreading the message that the tenets of family, personal freedom and responsibility point the way toward a GOP that fully embraces the freedom to marry.”

McCain, the daughter of Arizona Senator John McCain, is an MSNBC contributor and a columnist for the Daily Beast. She is an outspoken advocate of increasing the diversity of the Republican Party.

Recent polling shows that nearly a majority (49%) of Republican under the age of 29 support marriage equality.
