Dead GOP man walking: Jon Huntsman says he would respect NY marriage equality law as President
There’s no way that GOP primary voters will allow him to ride to the finish line in the Clown Car.
Former Utah governor and current presidential candidate Jon Huntsman said on Tuesday that as president he would respect the decision of states that legalized same-sex marriage and not seek to override those laws with a federal ban.
Speaking to reporters on the day of his campaign launch, Huntsman was asked specifically about the growing likelihood of a same-sex marriage bill being passed in New York. Would he seek to overrule Empire State lawmakers should he end up in the Oval Office?
“I would respect the state’s decision on that,” he replied.
