Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR): ‘I am Opposed to Gay Marriage’


Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR) clarified his feelings on marriage equality in a follow-up email to an interview he did last weekend with 5News:

“I am opposed to gay marriage,” he said in an e-mail. “In the interview with KFSM done on April 5, I also discussed whether gay couples should receive benefits if they work for the federal government. On the benefits issue, I said to ‘put me down in the undecided category.’  By that I meant that, depending on what the U.S. Supreme Court decides, I will evaluate whether federal benefits should be available to gay couples. Of course, I will consider the impact any extension of benefits would have on the federal budget.”
