LINCOLN (AP) — U.S. Senate candidate Bob Kerrey voiced support for same-sex marriage on Thursday, echoing a similar endorsement by President Barack Obama as the Nebraska Democrat seeks to reclaim a seat in one of the nation's hottest political races.

Kerrey said in a statement that he strongly believes in equal marriage rights for gay and lesbian couples, but added that states should retain the authority to write family and marriage laws. Nebraska voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment in 2000 that banned same-sex marriage.
