“I think it’ll come eventually, but for now I’m opposed,” Miller said.
Miller said he said he can support civil unions for same-sex couples.
Scott Wagner, president and founder of Penn Waste Inc., didn’t say whether he opposes or supports it.
Joe Sestak, a retired admiral and former U.S. congressman, will stop in York Sunday for a rally to support Democrat Linda Small in the race to replace Mike Waugh in the state Senate.
The rally begins at 4 p.m. at Democratic Party of York County headquarters, 275 W. Market St., York. Sestak said in a news release that Small will work hard to create good jobs, restore state funding for education and end unfair local tax increases that burden families.
“In the Navy, leaders are accountable for the results of their actions,” Sestak said in the release. “Too many politicians today only want to be measured by their intentions, not their deeds. Retired Master Chief Linda Small will be accountable to ‘We the People.’”
State Treasurer Rob McCord has been endorsed by ACTION United in the Democratic guv race, according to a news release.
