Republican Rep. Steve King has indicated that an Iowa Supreme Court decision effectively making same-sex marriages legal could bring him closer to making a bid for governor 2010.  

“It’s not a predominant component,” King told the Des Moines Register about how the ruling factors into his decision. “But when these kinds of things happen, does it make me more or less likely? The answer is more likely.”  

The Iowa Supreme Court ruled April 3 that a state statute limiting marriage between a man and a woman violated the state constitution and that the law should be interpreted to allow same-sex marriages.  

Democratic Gov. Chet Culver said in a statement April 3 that he would review the decision with his legal counsel and the state attorney general. Culver is widely expected to run for re-election.
