Carlos Curbelo, a Miami Republican running for U.S. Congress, tells Mimi Planas and a group of Log Cabin Republicans that he supports marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples.
Said Curbelo, a Miami-Dade County School Board member: "I have many gay friends. They are hard-working people. They love this country. And quite frankly I think most of them would be Republican if some in our party wouldn't express themselves in such an unfortunate way."
Curbelo also said he believes that religious institutions that don't support marriage equality should be allowed to opt out.
Log Cabin Republicans of Miami met April 30, 2014, at Casa Larios in Miami.
