During her 60 Minutes interview on Sunday, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) admitted she was wrong for opposing same-sex marriage in 2013. Her sister, Mary Cheney, is gay, and she told Chris Wallace during a 2013 interview that she “believe[s] in the traditional definition of marriage.”
“I love Mary very much. I love her family very much. This is just an issue on which we disagree,” she said at the time. Cheney, however, admitted during the Sunday interview she no longer stands by what she said in 2013.
“I was wrong. I love my sister very much,” she said. “I love her family very much, and I was wrong. It’s a very personal issue and very personal for my family. I believe that my dad was right and my sister and I have had that conversation.”
