Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said Sunday he believes it's "inevitable" that there will someday be a GOP presidential candidate who supports same-sex marriage, and that he could back such a candidate, even as he opposes gay marriage.


"Could you support a Republican presidential candidate someday who supported same-sex marriage?" NBC News "Meet The Press" guest host Chuck Todd asked Flake.

"Oh, I think that's inevitable. There will be one, and that I think he'll receive Republican support, or she will. So I think that yes, that the answer is yes," responded Flake.
