Video: Edie Windsor Endorses Christine Quinn For NYC Mayor

Well that's quite the score! New York City mayoral candidate Christine Quinn received an endorsement from the first lady of the marriage equality movement, Edie Windsor!

Check it out. 

Windsor also publicly endorsed Quinn yesterday during the Christopher Street celebration of her Supreme Court victory.

Politicker writes:

Edie Windsor, the plaintiff in the case that lead the Supreme Court to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act, formally endorsed City Council Speaker Christine Quinn tonight during a jubilant celebration rally in front of the historic Stonewall Inn.

“I wasn’t going to announce who I was going to endorse until a decision was made … and it’s Christine Quinn!” said Ms. Windsor of the woman who–if elected–would become the city’s first female and openly gay mayor.

Ms. Quinn was about to begin her remarks in front of the thousands of people now gathered on Christopher Street to celebrate the ruling, when Mr. Windsor jumped up–as much as an 84-year-old woman can–and grabbed the microphone to make the endorsement.

Ms. Quinn, apparently caught off-guard and overwhelmed by emotions, immediately embraced the 5-foot-tall Ms. Windsor, before singing her praise to the crowd.

Does Edie's endorsement have an impact, Instincters?
