Bobby Jindal not yet on board with Jon Huntsman when it comes to gay marriage

On today’s (24 February) NBC News program Meet the Press, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal reaffirmed his stance on traditional marriage.

When asked if he agreed with former Utah governor Jon Huntsman that it was time for the GOP to push for marriage rights for gay couples and families, Jindal replied no.

‘Look, I believe in the traditional definition of marriage,’ Jindal said to host David Gregory. ‘We lost [the 2012 election] because we didn’t present a vision showing how we believe the entire economy can grow, how people can join the middle class. We’re an aspirational party and we need policies that are consistent with that aspirational private sector growth.’

In an opinion piece for the American Conservative magazine Huntsman, who ran in the 2012 Republican presidential primary, wrote he now favors same sex marriage as opposed to civil unions. He sees his new stance in line with Abraham Lincoln, one of the founders of the Republican Party.
