TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - U.S. Senator John McCain, R-AZ, today released the following statement on the Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges:

"While I have deep respect for Americans on all sides of this issue, I disagree with today's decision. I continue to believe that the institution of marriage is a union between a man and a woman. I have long believed that questions about the definition of marriage should be settled by the people and their elected representatives, not the federal courts.

"I remain committed to upholding the religious freedom protections afforded to us under our Constitution to ensure that all Americans remain free to express and exercise their most firmly-held beliefs."
