WASHINGTON D.C. -- U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin sat in on the U.S. Supreme Court hearing on same-sex marriage. She says it's difficult to predict the outcome of the issues based on the justice's questions.

She says they posed several hypotheticals to the attorney, but couldn't be usre if that indicated how they were learning or if it was part of theatrics.

Senator Baldwin called the U.S. Supreme Court hearing an amazing experience as an openly gay woman, and a trained attorney. She said it was when the attorney's argued for the woman whom this case centers around that stood out to her.

U.S. Senator Ron Johnson believes allowing same sex marriage is a decision that should be remain in the states. Senator Johnson says the federal government should not override the choices of any one community in an attempt to impose a national standard.
