In addition to his own election victory, President Barack Obama is reportedly "so absolutely delighted" by the four historic same-sex marriage wins across the country.
Buzzfeed's Chris Gelder reports that Obama Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett spoke to supporters of the Human Rights Campaign on Nov. 8, and said the president believes voters in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington "all came down on the right side of history."
Jarrett also took time to clarify the Obama administration's stance on another benchmark win: "We couldn't be more thrilled that Wisconsin is sending Tammy Baldwin to the Senate," she said.
Baldwin will become the country's first openly gay senator.
