Liz Cheney: 'I am not pro-gay marriage'

(CNN) – A carefully worded statement from Liz Cheney Friday explained the Wyoming Senate candidate wasn't supportive of same-sex marriage, despite having a sister who married her longtime partner in Washington, D.C., last year.

"I am strongly pro-life and I am not pro-gay marriage," Cheney wrote. "I believe the issue of marriage must be decided by the states, and by the people in the states, not by judges and not even by legislators, but by the people themselves."
