Former FL Governor Crist Backs Gay Marriage

Share with friends

FL state capitolFormer (and perhaps future) Florida Governor Charlie Crist issued a statement on Thursday stating that he supports gay marriage. The statement marks a full 180 for Crist, who signed a petition to add a gay marriage ban to the state constitution back in 2006.

Crist posted the following on Facebook:

“”Some great news: On Tuesday, Delaware became the 11th state to allow marriage equality. And just a few days ago, Rhode Island adopted a similar measure, which followed victories last fall in Maine, Maryland and Washington. I most certainly support marriage equality in Florida and look forward to the day it happens here.”

The former governor is expected to run for the same seat in 2014, this time as a Democrat against incumbent Rick Scott.
