Walker Distances Himself from Pending Gay Marriage Decision

"Sensing trouble ahead for Wisconsin's gay marriage ban, Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen took the unusual step Friday of asking a federal judge to immediately block her own decision if she does strike down the ban," the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

"Also Friday, Gov. Scott Walker (R) backed away from his previous support for the state ban on gay marriage passed in 2006, saying he didn't know if it violated the U.S. Constitution, would still be approved by voters today or would amount to a big change for the state's values and economy if overturned. Making clear he wanted no part of this legal battle in an election year, the Republican governor said he was focused on other priorities."
