Gay marriage supporters rally at SC Statehouse

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Groups that want gay marriage in South Carolina as soon as possible are making their case at the Statehouse.

South Carolina Equality and other groups are holding a news conference at noon Wednesday to demand South Carolina drop its legal fight over whether the state's ban on same-sex marriage is legal.

The U.S. Supreme Court this week decided not to hear an appeal of a ruling allowing same-sex marriage by a federal appeals court with jurisdiction over South Carolina.

After the ruling, state Attorney General Alan Wilson vowed to keep fighting a case where a same-sex couple married in another place is asking South Carolina to recognize their union.
