Election 2012: Maryland's Same-Sex Marriage Referendum

Lawmakers in six states and the District of Columbia have legalized same-sex marriage, but none of them put the issue before the voters. Kojo explores the campaigns for and against Maryland's Question 6, and looks at how similar measures elsewhere and a possible Supreme Court decision could affect same-sex marriage across the United States.
