Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz are among 57 Republicans in Congress who are calling on the Supreme Court to uphold state bans on same-sex marriage, WATE reports from the Associated Press. The congressional Republicans said in a brief filed at the high court Friday that the justices should not impose “a federally mandated redefinition of the ancient institution of marriage” nationwide. The court will hear arguments on April 28 in cases from McConnell’s home state of Kentucky, as well as Tennessee, Michigan and Ohio.
