DENVER (AP) - Five Republican presidential hopefuls including Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker are in Denver Saturday talking to a group of conservative activists.

The candidates are making their cases to the 4,000 or so attendees of the Western Conservative Summit. Many are talking about last week’s Supreme Court rulings and what they mean for the GOP. The Court upheld President Obama’s health care overhaul and made gay marriage legal in all 50 states.

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Santorum said the gay marriage ruling was “based on a lie” that gay-marriage opponents are motivated by discrimination.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said that the decision was unjust and should be disobeyed. Businesswoman Carly Fiorina said that she supports civil unions and that conservatives should focus their energies now on protecting religious liberty.
