Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker flexed his social conservative credentials in an interview with ABC News’ “This Week,” saying that if the Supreme Court legalizes same-sex marriage nationwide, the “next approach” for individuals opposed to gay marriage will be with an anti-gay constitutional amendment.
I personally believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. If the court decides that, the only next approach is for those who are supporters of marriage being defined as between one man and one woman is ultimately to consider pursuing a constitutional amendment.
When asked by Jon Karl whether that meant he supported an amendment allowing states to continue banning same-sex marriage, Walker replied:
I believe that the decision on defining marriage should be left up to the states, yeah.
Walker is expected to announce his 2016 presidential bid later this summer.
