US Senator Ron Johnson, a Republican from Wisconsin, is personally opposed to same-sex couples getting married but he wants his political party to get over it.
Johnson, discussing ways for Republicans to be successful in the 2014 and 2016 elections, said today on CNBC's Squawk Box: 'I’m pretty traditional guy, almost 60 years old. I think marriage is between a man and a woman. But again if the voters decide that they want gay marriage I’m not going to oppose it.'
The senator suggested his party focus on economic issues and foreign policy instead.
