Ed Gillespie, who served as a senior adviser to Mitt Romney’s campaign, said Sunday that while Republicans may embrace a more federalist, state-by-state approach to same-sex marriage in future party platforms, he doesn’t believe the party platform will ever support marriage equality.

“I don’t think you would ever see the Republican Party platform saying we are in favor of same-sex marriage,” Gillespie said on “Fox News Sunday.” 

“I don’t see the Republican Party or most Republicans, obviously, changing in terms of believing that marriage is between one man and one woman,” Gillespie said.

“I wouldn’t have any problem with” a platform saying marriage is between a man and a woman in 2016, Gillespie said. “I think one of the questions is, I believe the platform right now calls for a federal constitutional amendment to ban it. You know, there may be a debate about that.”
