'Some great news': Charlie Crist now supports gay marriage, lauds Delaware for legalization this week

charlie cristPosted by by former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist to his Facebook page:

Some great news: On Tuesday, Delaware became the 11th state to allow marriage equality. And just a few days ago, Rhode Island adopted a similar measure, which followed victories last fall in Maine, Maryland and Washington. I most certainly support marriage equality in Florida and look forward to the day it happens here.

Crist, now a Democrat rumored to be running again for governor, has apparently evolved since the last time he ran for public office in 2010 as a GOP senate candidate. During that campaign, he told CNN like then-opponent Marco Rubio he supported a constitutional ban against marriage equality:

"I feel that marriage is a sacred institution, if you will. But I do believe in tolerance. I'm a live and let live kind of guy, and while I feel that way about marriage, I think if partners want to have the opportunity to live together, I don't have a problem with that. …

… when it becomes to the institution of marriage, I believe that it is between a man and a woman, it's just how I feel."
