Fiorina Comes Out Against Federal Marriage Amendment

In an interview with the Iowa conservative blog Caffeinated Thoughts this weekend, GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said that she would oppose any effort to amend the Constitution to reverse a Supreme Court decision striking down bans on marriage equality. Fiorina, who said this year that she doesn’t think the Supreme Court should “shortcut” the conversation about marriage by ruling in favor of marriage rights for gay and lesbian couples, said in a 2010 Christian Coalition candidate survey that she would support a Federal Marriage Amendment banning gay marriage.

Fiorina quickly pivoted to talking about “religious liberty” being under threat from LGBT rights, a strategy she also took in a recent interview with National Journal.
