62. Senator Allen of Virginia against FMA
I'm stunned. Senator Allen says he will support the FMA, but only if a constitutional amendment is necessary after DOMA is challenged in court. So, by inference, he is against it for now.

This is the key paragraph in an e-mail I received from his office:

I hope the existing Defense of Marriage Act, which I support, can accomplish this goal. If indicated because of a court decision, statutory changes may be necessary. I will support statutory protections of marriage. If a constitutional amendment is required, I will support one.
