So I wrote him a letter, thanking him. Because I wasn't sure how much appreciation he would get from my fellow Sandlappers.
And I got a response.
Thank you very much for your letter of appreciation regarding my support for marriage equality. Like President Obama, my thinking on this issue has evolved over the years, and I was proud to announce my support. I have fought for equal rights under the law since my days as a college student protesting segregation, and I am confident that we will continue to make progress toward achieving marriage equality for all Americans.
Thank you again for taking the time to write me. If I can ever be of any assistance to you or your family, please do not hesitate to contact me.
With kindest regards, I am,
James E. Clyburn
Member of Congress
