Oct 06, 2006 — Eliot Spitzer says gay marriage is part of the "core values" in a civil rights campaign he said should draw people together, rather than divide them. Spitzer addressed the annual meeting of the Empire State Pride Agenda last night in New York. The gay rights group has endorsed Spitzer's Democratic campaign for governor against Republican-Conservative John Faso. Faso says he's open to the idea of civil unions but not gay marriage. Last night, Spitzer made his position clear.
