Flake: ‘Inevitable’ that Future GOP Presidential Candidate Will Support Gay Marriage



It’s “inevitable” that a future Republican presidential candidate will support gay marriage, and that candidate will receive support from his GOP colleagues, Arizona senator Jeff Flake told NBC’s Chuck Todd this morning. 

Flake, however, said that though the views of many of his colleagues on this issue are evolving toward an acceptance of gay marriage, he maintains a tradition view of the subject. Visibly uncomfortable, he explained, “I believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman.” 

The post-election report recently released by the Republican National Committee urged Republican politicians to tone down their opposition to gay marriage.
