GOP’s Richard Vinroot opposes NC marriage amendment

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (By Joe Borlik, WGHP) — A former GOP nominee for governor and mayor of Charlotte is one of the highest-profile Republicans opposing North Carolina’s proposed constitutional amendment banning same-sex unions.

The Charlotte Observer reported that Richard Vinroot is speaking up after state House Speaker Thom Tillis predicted the amendment could be repealed within a generation because young people tend to support same-sex marriage rights.

Vinroot says he doesn’t see the point of changing the state Constitution for something the Republican House speaker thinks is tenuous.
