Shortly after President Obama publicly endorsed gay marriage, the Republican National Committee's chairman called the move political. "While President Obama has played politics on this issue, the Republican Party and our presumptive nominee Mitt Romney have been clear," Reince Priebus wrote in a statement. "We support maintaining marriage between one man and one woman and would oppose any attempts to change that." During a press conference in Oklahoma City Wednesday afternoon, Romney reiterated, "My view is that marriage itself is a relationship between a man and a woman, and that's my own preference."
