Republican Gov. Scott Walker hasn't said much publicly about his positions on abortion or gay marriage but he's proudly trumpeting his stances on both issues in a letter seeking a conservative group's endorsement.
Walker says in the Sept. 5 letter to Wisconsin Family Action that he passed anti-abortion measures and he supports marriage between one man and one woman.
Walker ran a vague campaign ad earlier this month saying he's pro-life and supported legislation to increase safety for women seeking abortions. He has repeatedly told reporters that he supported Wisconsin's gay marriage ban when he was a legislator but his opinion on it doesn't matter now.
Walker's opponent in the Nov. 4 election, Democrat Mary Burke, said Tuesday that Walker should have made those positions clear to the public.
