Scott Walker Evades The Question: I Don't Know If Being Gay Is A Choice Or Not

The Hill reports:
Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) said on Sunday he is not sure if homosexuality is a choice. The 2016 GOP presidential candidate refused comment on the issue during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I don’t know the answer to that question,” Walker said when asked if being gay is a choice. “That’s not even an issue for me to be involved in,” he said. “I don’t have an opinion on every single issue out there.” “I am going to spend my time focusing on the issues I do know and can work on,” he added. Walker also said his White House run is focused on representing all Americans, even ones who do not support his beliefs. “I’m going to fight for people regardless of whether they vote for me or not,” he said. “That’s not even an issue for me to be involved in,” Walker added.
The Human Rights Campaign reacts: "It's appalling that a candidate for president in the year 2015 could botch such a fundamental question. Of course it isn't a choice. If it was, Scott Walker would be able to tell us when he chose to be straight."
