Kraft talks gay marriage with Milwaukee Public Radio

Tag icon , ,

Prof. Emeritus Michael Kraft again weighed in on the possible election effects of Wisconsin’s recent gay marriage news, speaking with Milwaukee Public Radio’s Bob Bach for a story that aired Friday (June 13). Same-sex marriage is unlikely to be among the top issues in this fall’s election, Kraft said, as Democrats embrace the news and Republicans likely ignore or oppose it as a way of appealing to their base. Kraft also told Bach that county clerks who registered gay couples to marry should be on solid legal ground. “It is a legal decision and there would have to be compliance, unless it is overturned by a higher court,” Kraft said. His interview was recorded prior to U.S. District Court Judge Barbara Crabb’s Friday afternoon decision to put same-sex marriages on hold in the state.
