Jeff Flake: It’s inevitable that a GOP presidential candidate will support gay marriage
“Could you support a Republican presidential candidate someday who supported same-sex marriage?” NBC News “Meet The Press” guest host Chuck Todd asked Flake.
“Oh, I think that’s inevitable. There will be one, and that I think he’ll receive Republican support, or she will. So I think that yes, that the answer is yes,” responded Flake…
Republican strategist Ed Gillespie said on “Fox News Sunday” that he doesn’t have a problem with the 2016 Republican Party platform saying marriage is between a man and a woman, but suggested that support for a constitutional amendment might wane.
“I don’t think you’d ever see the Republican Party platform say we’re in favor of same-sex marriage,” said Gillespie, who was a top adviser on Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign. But, he added, “There’s been a little bit of a shift, I think, in terms of Republicans saying we should allow this to be worked out through the states, not imposed by courts, and not imposed federally.”
