HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Republican Scott Wagner’s campaign is clarifying that he’d veto any bill that restricts marriage rights for same-sex couples after the gubernatorial candidate suggested that he’d consider signing legislation ending recognition of same-sex marriage in Pennsylvania.

Wagner’s campaign made the statement Tuesday, after he told a questioner at a Monday night question-and-answer session in Erie that he couldn’t immediately say how he’d handle such a bill.

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf supports same-sex marriage and earlier this month created a commission to advance the rights of the LGBTQ community.

Asked in the primary about same-sex marriage, Wagner’s campaign left the answer vague, saying only that he’d “enforce the law of the land.”

However, Wagner’s campaign points out that he’s long supported legislation banning discrimination in housing and employment based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
