The Christian Family Coalition mailing says Miami-Dade Mayoral candidate Julio Robaina signed a "Marriage Protection Pledge" that "defends marriage as one man, one woman, and will not support 'civil unions' and/or 'domestic partnerships.'
According to SAVE Dade Executive Director C.J. Ortuño, Robaina responded to a questionnaire regarding support of basic domestic-partner rights and formation of a statewide domestic-partner registry:
"I support and believe that it is right for there to be a register of domestic partner relationship with the county to provide visitation rights and basic rights to domestic partners. I would support a measure at the state level that recognizes visitation rights and other basic rights. As to health care coverage, I would need additional information regarding its fiscal impact."
Opponent Carlos Gimenez tells SAVE Dade he supports domestic partnerships. Marcelo Llorente says he's undecided on the issue. Gimenez and Llorente declined to respond on domestic partnerships to the Christian Family Coalition.
