GOP Senator: 'Inevitable' GOP Nominee Will Back Gay Marriage

Arizona Senator Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said to NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet The Press” Sunday that it is inevitable that a Republican presidential nominee will back gay marriage.

Transcript:

CHUCK TODD: Let me ask you on gay marriage. Could you support a Republican presidential candidate someday who supported same-sex marriage.

SENATOR JEFF FLAKE (R-Arizona): Oh, I think that’s inevitable. There will be one, and that I think he’ll receive Republican support, or she will. So, I think that,that yes, that the answer is yes.

TODD: And where are you in this issue? You say it’s inevitable, are you — Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), a Republican colleague of yours called it evolving on the issue. Are you evolving, to use her words, on this issue?

FLAKE: I believe, I believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman. I still hold to the traditional definition of marriage.

TODD: Is this something that you’ve thought — are you thinking about? Could you imagine changing your position before you left the U.S. Senate?

FLAKE: I can’t. I’ll tell you, in the past I supported repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, I supported the Non-Discrimination Act as well. So — but I hold to the traditional definition of marriage.
