Asa Hutchinson: States Likely to Have to Recognize Gay Marriage from Other States

By    |   Sunday, 26 April 2015 12:38 PM

As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments Tuesday on same-sex marriage, one governor who opposes gay marriage said he expects at least some losses when the high court announces its decision.

"I think it's a little bit unpredictable," Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Sunday on "Meet the Press." "I think they could continue to give some deference to the states, but I do think we'll probably have to clearly recognize what happens in another state."

Hutchinson has spoken of a difference of opinion with his own son on same-sex marriage, calling it a "generational divide."

"It's a divide politically. It's a divide geographically," Hutchinson, a Republican, said Sunday. He noted that Arkansas has a state constitutional amendment that defines marriage as between one man and one woman.

"That is my conviction and that's my belief, but I also recognize if we talk about this issue we need to talk about it in terms of tolerance, we need to talk about it in terms of nondiscriminatory policy, the diversity of the work place," he said.

Hutchinson also talked about the latest controversy involving Bill and Hillary Clinton, subjects of a new book, "Clinton Cash," which questions actions taken by Hillary Clinton as secretary of state and donations made to the Clinton Foundation.

There is no evidence of a quid pro quo, so Republicans should be careful not to overstate the case, Hutchinson said.

"It reminds us that Clintons are complicated, and they tend to make mistakes," he said.
