In the wake of President Obama's support for gay marriage, his all-but-certain Republican foe in the 2012 presidential election reaffirmed that he is opposed to it.
Mitt Romney said he is opposed to both civil unions and same-sex marriage, in fact. The former Massachusetts governor told Denver Fox affiliate KDVR-TV:
"Well, when these issues were raised in my state of Massachusetts, I indicated my view, which is I do not favor marriage between people of the same gender, and I do not favor civil unions if they are identical to marriage other than by name."
"My view is the domestic partnership benefits, hospital visitation rights, and the like are appropriate but that the others are not," added Romney.
Obama's support came following Tuesday's passage of North Carolina Amendment One, a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, civil unions and domestic partnerships, and Vice President Joe Biden support for gay marriage.
He made the end of his "evolution" on the topic official in an interview with ABC News' Robin Roberts, which aired on Good Morning America today.
