Sen. Jeff Flake sees GOP presidential contender backing gay marriage
Question of the Day
WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Jeff Flake says it is “inevitable” that the GOP will see one of its own run for president while supporting gay marriage.
Mr. Flake, Arizona Republican, on Sunday said the shifting political landscape eventually will yield a candidate who backs same-sex marriage and he predicted that candidate would find support within the GOP.
Sen. Rob Portman, Ohio Republican, has announced his support for gay marriage in states that choose to allow such unions, and Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Alaska Republican, says her position is “evolving.” Scores of Democrats in recent weeks have announced their support for gay marriages.
Mr. Flake says he still believes marriage should be restricted to straight couples and said he doesn’t imagine he would change his position.
Mr. Flake spoke to NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
