At last night’s GOP presidential debate in New Hampshire, FOX reporter Carl Cameron asked Heidi Cherkot of Dover whether or not there should be a constitutional ban on gay marriage.
Her answer, “absolutely not,” received cheers from the debate audience. When the question went to Sam Brownback, who answered “yes,” the audience booed.
Said Brownback: “Answer to that is yes. And the reason is, this is a foundational institution. It is a foundational institution. I understand this is a divided audience on this.”
Brownback also answered a question about Idaho Senator Larry Craig. Said Brownback: “I’m running saying that the lead thing we need to do is rebuild the family in this country. And I think we need to be clear about our efforts and willingness to do that. … We shouldn’t walk away from family values for fear that instances like this happen within our party.”
