Longshot GOP Candidate Gary Johnson Supports Redefining Marriage

 

A desperate attempt to gain attention now that his campaign has failed to get traction among GOP voters?

Presidential candidate and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson announced during an on-line Town Hall Thursday night that he supports civil marriage for gay Americans. Having long supported civil unions for gay couples, Johnson’s decision to endorse gay marriage is based on “a great deal of deliberation, discussion with the gay community, and a conclusion that government has no business choosing who should be allowed the benefits of marriage and who should not.” -- Gary Johnson 2012
