Romney Maintains Opposition to Gay Marriage, Calls Matter ‘Sensitive Topic’

Mitt Romney responded to President Obama’s announcement that he now personally supports gay marriage today.

“States are able to make decisions with regards to domestic partnership benefits, such as hospital visitation rights, benefits and so forth of various kinds could be determined state by state,” Romney said.

“My view is that marriage itself is a relationship between a man and a woman,” he continued. “That’s my own preference. I know other people have differing views. This is a very tender and sensitive topic, as are many social issues. But I have the same view I’ve had since well, since running for office.”
