    Please ask Tisei what he thinks of Romney’s support of amending the Constitution to ban gay marriage.  Romney only supports civil unions when they include barely any rights and certainly nothing otherwise equal to those granted by marriage. 

    Why not have a Republican who is more representative of the national party’s postion on this issue?
