After months of saying he supports civil unions between same-sex couples, Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist has significantly narrowed the definition of what he means.
Asked Thursday whether his support for civil unions is consistent with his backing for a proposed anti-gay marriage amendment to the Florida Constitution, a campaign spokeswoman said Crist opposes state-approved civil unions.
“Charlie Crist has adamantly said he supports civil unions,” said Patrick Howell, an Orlando attorney who supports Crist. “He needs to put his money where his mouth is and get a constitutional amendment to create unions.”
