John Kasich Won't Advocate For Ban on Same-Sex Marriage

Kasich says everyone should be "a little more tolerant"

Republican presidential candidate John Kasich told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews he would not advocate for a ban on same-sex marriage, despite his traditional beliefs, NBC News reported.

"There could be an effort to pass a Constitutional Amendment. I'm not for doing it. I'm for moving on," the Republican presidential hopeful said Thursday in a town hall airing on MSNBC at 7 p.m. ET.

Kasich told Matthews even though he believes marriage should remain between a man and a woman, everyone should be “a little more tolerant.”

The Supreme Court ruled same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry last year.
