Sen. Flake Says GOP Presidential Nominee Will Inevitably Support Gay Marriage

Although he has no intention of changing his own views on marriage


WASHINGTON, April 1 (UPI) — A Republican U.S. presidential nominee will back same-sex marriage sooner or later and will get party support, says a senator widely seen as a rising GOP star.

"I think that's inevitable," Jeff Flake of Arizona told NBC's "Meet the Press."

"There will be one, and that I think he'll receive Republican support, or she will," Flake said in answer to a question of whether he could support a Republican presidential candidate who someday supported same-sex marriage. "So I think that yes, that the answer is yes."
