Ohio, USA: Governor Kasich – Portman Good, Civil Unions OK, Marriage Equality Bad

Written by scott on March 21st, 2013

Ohio Governor John KasichOhio’s Governor came out in support of Senator Rob Portman, although he wouldn’t go as far as to support marriage equality in Ohio. News Net 5 reports:

Kasich was asked if he could imagine a situation that might cause him to change his position. “I really can’t see one, I mean, I talked to Rob and encouraged him,” Kasich said. “If people want to have civil unions and have some way to transfer their resources, I’m for that. I don’t support gay marriage.”

Let’s step back for a moment and marvel that we’re at the point that these kinds of questions are being asked of republicans around the country. That’s progress.
