Though some Republican White House hopefuls have tried to insert nuance into their positions on gay marriage – something that polling shows most Americans back – their opposition is clear. The question of whether or not a candidate would attend the gay wedding of a loved one has become an increasingly common litmus test for candidates on the issue. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said on Tuesday he would attend the same-sex wedding of someone he cared about.
