The major contenders to be Mitt Romney’s running mate mostly hold anti-equality positions on issues such as marriage equality and employment non-discrimination laws, according to an analysis by the American Civil Liberties Union.
"Gov. Romney’s pick might end up a
heartbeat from the presidency, but they’ll be light years from civil
liberties," ACLU executive director Anthony D. Romero said. Among the
possible vice presidential picks is Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., who
opposes her state's marriage equality law and supports an amendment to
the U.S. Constitution that would overturn it.
