Nancy Reagan Supports Same-Sex Marriage

Former First Lady Nancy Reagan supports same-sex marriage, her daughter Patti Davis claims.
“She does,” Davis said when asked if her mother supported marriage equality.
“I’m hesitant to speak for anyone else, and she’s not comfortable going out in the public eye and getting in the firing line of anything,” Davis told Michael Signorile on the SiriusXM show “OutQ.”
Davis, the daughter of former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and Nancy Reagan, made headlines earlier this month when she said that her father would have supported the right of same-sex couples to get married.
Davis said she never discussed the topic with her father before he died in 2004, but told The New York Times that Reagan would have “been puzzled,” by the debate over gay marriage due to what the newspaper described as his “distaste for government intrusion into private lives.”
“(He) did not believe that gayness was a choice,” she added.
Her comments about her parents come as attitudes among lawmakers quickly shift on the controversial issue.
In recent weeks, a slew of Senators across both parties have come out in favor of same-sex marriage.
Among Senate Democrats, only Mark Pryor (D-Ark.), Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.). remain opposed to marriage equality.
Republicans have also begun to evolve on the issue.
Earlier this month, Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) became the second GOP senator to shift after Rob Portman (R-Ohio) switched his position in March after his son came out to him as gay.
