Eyeing Presidential Run, Carly Fiorina Tip-Toes Around Marriage

Eyeing Presidential Run, Carly Fiorina Tip-Toes Around Marriage

Former executive Carly Fiorina has all but said she's angling for the Republican nomination for president next year. To lay the groundwork, Fiorina gave an interview to The Christian Post discussing some issues near and dear to conservatives: abortion and same-sex marriage.

Fiorina was careful to not be as adamant in her opposition to marriage equality as she was to abortion rights (where she claimed embryos feel pain and fetuses dream). When asked about the upcoming Supreme Court case weighing nationwide marriage equality, Fiorina gave this opaque response: "[Same-sex marriage] is an important conversation that is going on in homes, churches, and communities across the country. I think that the worst thing the Supreme Court can do right now is shortcut this conversation."

Fiorina, who ran unsuccessfully for the Senate in 2010, also claimed that federal spending on education does nothing for students. Read the full interview here.
