Asked: Where Do Candidates For Governor Stand On Gay Marriage?
"I do not support gay marriage. I believe in the sacrament of marriage between one man as husband and one woman as wife. I also believe this institution is the foundation of the family and the basic building block of society and should therefore be protected in law as the only form of marriage that is sanctioned and recognized by government policy. As a U.S. Congressman, I voted to defend traditional marriage - and for the Defense of Marriage Act - in 1996. I stand by my vote and will not support the legalization of same-sex unions in Arizona."
