Governor Walker Remaing Silent on Gay Marriages in Wisconsin
Friday, June 13th, 2014 -- 1:05 PM-Gov. Scott Walker has a long history of voting against same-sex marriage in Wisconsin.
But as he eyes re-election, the Republican is largely avoiding talking about the topic with polls showing a majority of voters now support allowing gay couples to wed.
Walker was scheduled to make his first public appearance yesterday since a judge last week struck down Wisconsin's 2006 constitutional ban on same-sex marriages. Walker voted for the ban and campaigned strongly in support of it.
In 2005, Walker said for many years he believed marriage is between one man and one woman and that belief is "even stronger today."
But in recent months Walker has softened his public comments to say he didn't know how significant it would be if gay marriages were legalized.
