Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg responded Sunday to Rush Limbaugh’s recent homophobic remarks, saying he doesn’t take “lectures on family values” from the conservative radio host and Medal of Freedom recipient.
“Well, I love my husband. I’m faithful to my husband. On stage we usually just go for a hug. But I love him very much, and I’m not going take lectures on family values from the likes of Rush Limbaugh,” Buttigieg, who is gay, told CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union.”
In a Gallup poll released earlier this month, more than 3 in 4 Americans (78%) said they would be willing to vote for a gay or lesbian person if they were a party’s “Well-Qualified” candidate for president.
