Barbara Bush, daughter of former President George W. Bush, is joining the fight for gay marriage. The famous twin appeared in a video for the Human Rights Campaign in support of same-sex marriage rights.
"I'm Barbara Bush and I'm a New Yorker for marriage equality," she says in the ad. "New York is about fairness and equality and everyone should have the right to marry the person that they love. Join us."
This video is part of a series featuring New Yorkers, pushing to legalize gay marriage it in New York. The state blocked a bill allowing it in December 2009.
She is not the first daughter of a politician to speak out in favor of same sex marriage, or disagree with her dad. That trailblazing honor goes to Meghan McCain who has also been very vocal on the issue. Though there's a growing group of high-profile conservatives who have recently spoken out in support, including Dick Cheney, Laura Bush, Ted Olson and Ken Mehlman.
Democrats like Barack Obama and Joe Biden oppose gay marriage.
