Marriage should be only one-man-one-woman
The gubernatorial candidates discussed the same-sex marriage movement, answering the question what good and not so good has come from it:
Hutchinson: Supports marriage between one man and one woman. Still unanswered questions from SCOTUS.
Gilbert: State has a right to stay out of the marriage business. I believe it should. If people wish to be married they should be.
Ross: Personally opposed to gay marriage but issue will be resolved by SCOTUS.
