AP Interview: Green candidate backs gay marriage

CHICAGO (AP) -- Green Party candidate LeAlan Jones says he would vote to legalize same-sex marriage if he's elected to the U.S. Senate.

Jones says he personally opposes gay marriage but he thinks it's best for government to stay out of people's bedrooms. He says people should be able to fall in love and live as they want.

In an interview Thursday with The Associated Press, Jones also said he supports letting gay people serve openly in the military.

Jones is running for President Barack Obama's former Senate seat against Democrat Alexi Giannoulias (jeh-NOO'-lee-us) and Republican Mark Kirk.
