Gary Bauer Thinks Obama's Same-Sex Marriage Support Hurts in Florida and Battleground States
With President Barack Obama saying that he backed same-sex marriage last week, Bauer insists this will be a major issue in a host of states the Democrat incumbent needs to target in November.
“What do North Carolina, Nevada, Missouri, Colorado, Arizona, Ohio, Wisconsin, Florida, Virginia and Michigan have in common?” Bauer asked in an email to supporters sent out late Monday and in his column at Human Events. “They are all tossup states that together will determine who wins the presidency in November. They're also all states whose voters have passed constitutional amendments to preserve normal marriage in recent years.
“Marriage should not be a political issue,” Bauer continued. “But the left is trying to force its morality on the rest of the country and it clearly intends to win the culture war.”
Bauer’s ideas on how the GOP should respond can be found at his Human Events column.
