DENVER (AP) Gov. John Hickenlooper is coming out as a supporter of gay marriage.

The Colorado Democrat has been a vocal supporter of gay rights but has generally stopped short of formally endorsing same-sex marriage. On Monday he provided a statement in support of a gay rights group that kicked off a campaign to bring gay marriage to Colorado.

The governor said, quote, "and if all people are created equal, then by extension of law, logic, and love, every adult couple should also have the freedom to join in marriage."

Hickenlooper last year signed a bill legalizing civil unions in Colorado. He is running for re-election this year. Colorado voters in 2006 banned gay marriage.
