Rubio Breaks With Romney On Marriage Equality, Says It Should Be Left To The States

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) — who is rumored to be on Mitt Romney’s vice presidential short list — told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto Thursday afternoon that he disagrees with the former Massachusetts governor’s support for a federal constitutional amendment defining marriage as union between one man and one woman. “Ultimately marriage is regulated by states, so, that is where it remains and where it should remain and that is what most people believe,” Rubio said in response to a question about the amendment and reiterated his personal opposition to the freedom to marry.

Watch it:

The Florida senator was far more circumspect while challenging Charlie Crist for the seat in 2010, however, telling reporters that he had “mixed feelings” about the Federal Marriage Amendment.
