Every family has their differences, and Republican Gov. Scott Walker and his family are no different.
Aside from Scott Walker’s fashion choices and his questionable melodic range, the Walkers also disagree on one issue a bit more pertinent to the governor’s impending presidential campaign: same-sex marriage.
The sons of the soon-to-be 2016 GOP presidential candidate strongly disagree with their father on this one.
Alex and Matt Walker said their father was wrong for calling the historic Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex unions a “grave mistake.” On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Tonette Walker, Scott’s wife of 12 years, told host Dana Bash when the boys came to her with their opposing views on marriage equality, she urged them to talk to their father about it.
“Matt and I aren’t necessarily changing his stances on any issues,” said Alex about his father’s conservative views. “We respect his opinion on things.”
Although, Walker has attended a wedding reception for a gay couple, he has made it very clear he stands firm in his belief that marriage should be between and man and women, and that the states should make their own decision on same-sex marriage.
Walker is expected to announce his presidential bid Monday.
According to a recent Quinnipiac University poll, Walker leads the crowded group of 2016 GOP contenders in the Iowa GOP Caucus, including billionaire real estate investor media entrepreneur Donald Trump.
