Republican state sen. John Carona’s comments on gay rights stir controversy
New polls show nearly 70% of Texans support some form of legal partnership.
State Sen. John Carona’s take on gay rights
DALLAS While state Sen. John Carona's comments on his "evolving" attitude toward certain gay rights' issues have garnered plenty of negative attention from conservative groups, the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll shows the Republican lawmaker's views are consistent with changing attitudes among many Texans.
Carona issued a statement in response to our request for an interview about his comments and the poll data: "Consistent with my voting record, I do not support gay marriage. This is my view, and I believe it reflects the view of an overwhelming majority of voters in Senate District 16."
