Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), on Tuesday rejoiced at Senator Ted Cruz's win in Iowa, calling it a “win for marriage.”

Brown, who heads the nation's largest group devoted to undermining the Supreme Court's June finding that gay and lesbian couples have a constitutional right to marry, said that the takeaway from Monday's results was that Americans reject the high court's ruling.

“Senator Cruz is a champion for marriage and religious liberty and his victory last night sends a powerful message to the nation’s elite that the American people utterly reject the anti-constitutional, illegitimate ruling of the US Supreme Court redefining marriage,” Brown wrote in a blog post. “His win should send shockwaves throughout Washington, and provide real momentum for legislation to protect supporters of marriage from retaliation or punishment for standing for the truth of marriage in their daily lives and at work.”

“NOM is proud to have played a key role in supporting Sen. Cruz and helping him win in Iowa. Now we must turn our attention to New Hampshire, South Carolina and the coming states who will vote before we know it.”

“Electing a marriage champion is critical to the cause of marriage and our ability to restore marriage to our nation’s laws. We will continue to do everything in our power to elect Ted Cruz and to demonstrate to the nation that support for traditional marriage remains strong, an enduring value that the American people demand be restored to our nation’s laws,” he added.
