Alaska Senator Lisa MurkowskiUS Senator Lisa Murkowski, who won her last election in a write-in squeaker against a tea party candidate, is “evolving” on marriage equality. The Washington Post reports:

“I’ve got two young sons who, when I ask them and their friends how they feel about gay marriage, kinda give me one of those looks like, ‘Gosh mom, why are you even asking that question?'” she told the Alaska Star. “The term ‘evolving view’ has been perhaps overused, but I think it is an appropriate term for me to use.” Murkowski said she would look to her constituents before making a decision.

Will Murkowski be the next GOP Senator to openly support marriage equality? She’s one of a handful of more moderate republican Senators.

Time will tell.
