Walker, Burke spar over gay marriage

MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Mary Burke are sparring over same-sex marriage.

Burke said Monday that Walker is waffling on whether he believes gay couples should be able to get married in Wisconsin. But Walker says his position is clear and Burke needs a lesson in ``Government 101'' because she doesn't understand the governor can't arbitrarily change the constitution.

Walker says he voted for the ban in 2006 but now his stance doesn't matter because the governor plays no role in changing the constitution.

Walker says the governor has no bearing on that issue. He says, ``It's not a matter of changing positions.''

Burke says Walker isn't leading on the issue and she would support gay marriages in Wisconsin
