During a campaign stop in New Hampshire, Fred Thompson was asked about a law set to take effect in that state on January 1st that would allow civil unions and whether he would support a federal law that would do the same...
"I'm proud to say that in January 2008 New Hampshire has passed a law facilitating civil unions here. ... What is your belief for federal civil unions to be passed?" Paul asked.
"Soviet Union?" Thompson responded.
"No, civil unions," Paul said.
"Oh. No, I would not be in support of that," Thompson said.
