GOP still plans to make issue of gay marriage USATODAY.com -

WASHINGTON - Conservatives had counted on the Senate's vote Wednesday on a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage to give them a boost, but political analysts say it's unclear whether the tally will add votes for Republicans this fall. Despite predictions by Sen. Wayne Allard, R-Colo., the amendment's chief sponsor, that the measure would garner 52 votes, it fell short of that and gained just one more supporter than in 2004, the last time it came up.
