Senior Obama Advisor: President Obama May Endorse Same-Sex Marriage Soon

A spokesperson for President Obama’s re-election campaign said Tuesday night that Obama was “disappointed” about North Carolina’s decision to approve a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships in the state. And as the administration is still trying to find its footing on the issue following Vice President Joe Biden’s endorsement of marriage equality on Sunday, the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza reminds us that a senior adviser to the president said in an interview last month that Obama “may get around” to supporting the freedom to marry before November:

Obama will sit down for an interview with ABC News at 1:30 today, “during which he is likely to discuss his ‘evolving’ views on the issue,” the New York Times notes. “ABC secured the interview with Mr. Obama on Tuesday afternoon, according to two people involved in the planning.”
