Hillary Clinton believes the Supreme Court should rule in favor of same-sex couples, a Clinton campaign spokesperson said Tuesday. After a BuzzFeed story pointed out that the Clinton campaign has been quiet on the subject, her campaign released a statement. 

“Hillary Clinton supports marriage equality and hopes the Supreme Court will come down on the side of same-sex couples being guaranteed that constitutional right,” Adrienne Elrod, a spokesperson for Hillary for America, wrote.
