Brian Sims: Gay marriage ‘common sense’ for most Americans, but not for Romney

The War Room with Jennifer Granholm

Pennsylvania candidate and civil rights advocate Brian Sims talks about Romney’s stance on marriage equality and how Romney’s waffling is a reflection of the polls. “My guess is that behind closed doors, Mitt Romney would tell you that he’s had gay friends, gay family, gay co-workers — and we all know that he has. And my guess is that he probably treated them with the utmost respect. But the fact that he, in order to receive the nomination from the Republican Party, feels that he needs to stray so far from what is very common sense for most Americans speaks more to the party than it does to Mitt Romney.” Sims also tells his personal story, of coming out as gay while a championship college football player.
