Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) says if an upcoming ruling by the Supreme Court results in the legalization of same-sex marriage, opponents should consider pursuing a constitutional amendment banning it.

“If the court decides that, the only next approach is for those who are supporters of marriage being defined as between one man and one woman is ultimately to consider pursuing a constitutional amendment,” he said in an interview airing Sunday on ABC News’s “This Week.”

Walker, who said he believes marriage is between one man and one woman, added that the decision should be “left up to the states.”

The Wisconsin governor said during the interview he plans to announce his 2016 intentions “shortly” after the end of June.

The high court is expected to issue its decision on same-sex marriage before its current term ends at the end of the month.
