Cindy McCain talked about her recent turn as a gay rights advocate and her husband’s (potentially) evolving views on equal marriage as a guest on the Bender podcast on Thursday.
McCain credits her daughter Megan with opening her eyes and “challenging” her to do more to support gay rights — and that may not be the only case of familial influence going on in the McCain household.
When asked about her husband Sen. John McCain — who is currently working pretty hard to keep protections for LGBT individuals out of immigration reform — McCain said a change of heart (and policy persuasion?) may be on the horizon: “I think he’s coming around,” she said. “My husband and I have differed on many issues over the years … I think down the line we’ll see our country changing … on this issue I know he believes what’s right.”
