When it comes to Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s opinion on the Republican Party’s platform opposition to same-sex marriage, the Republican governor had just three words Tuesday night, despite his own state’s previous opposition to the law: The Supreme Court.
“The Supreme Court has already made a decision,” Scott told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren, referring to the shooting at an LGBT night club in Orlando last month that killed 49 people, carried out by a U.S. citizen who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.
“We need to figure out how to come together as a country and include the Republican Party,” Scott said. “We all need to come together,” adding, “it’s the law of the land.”
As you’ll see below, Scott refused to outright condemn the GOP platform plank which calls for repealing same-sex marriage, telling Van Susteren that he “hasn’t seen” that part of the platform.
