North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper says he supports marriage equality but acknowledges his personal views aren't preventing him from vigorously defending North Carolina's constitutional amendment banning marriage equality.

When Cooper opposed passage of the May 2012 amendment prohibiting same-sex marriages, which passed by a comfortable margin, he spoke mostly about the lack of clarity in its language, and had never addressed publicly his views on the issue itself.

But when asked over the weekend by The Associated Press in an interview whether he'd like to see the amendment repealed or a law passed to sanction same-sex marriage, Cooper said: "I support marriage equality."
