2016 GOP Hopefuls React to Gay Marriage Ruling
CNN – Republicans seeking the White House struggled to find their footing … after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of gay marriage, splitting between pushing to fight the issue directly or looking for “religious freedom” protections.
Candidates running closer to the center, including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Lindsey Graham, issued tightly-parsed language urging their colleagues to focus on protecting “religious freedom”. And Ohio Gov. John Kasich urged Republicans to respect the ruling and ditch the matter altogether.
