Senator Bill Nelson Opposes Gay Marriage

TAMPA, FL. (970 WFLA)- Florida U.S. Senator Bill Nelson is now on the record about gay marriage.

Nelson says his personal preference is for marriage to be defined as a union between a man and a woman. He says he does not feel like an outsider as a Democrat against gay marriage, citing a dozen other senators who, Nelson says, "reflect their constituencies" on the issue.

GOP Senator Marco Rubio is also against gay marriage, saying that opposing same-sex marriage does not make someone a "bigot."
