Head of Illinois GOP Asks Party Members to Support Marriage EqualityAs Illinois legislators prepare to consider a marriage equality bill, the chairman of the state’s Republican Party is asking party members to support it.

Pat Brady said today that he was making calls to Republican lawmakers, doing so as a citizen, not in his official party role, reports the Daily Herald, a newspaper in Chicago’s northwest suburbs. “I think it’s time for people to support this,” Brady said.

Debate on the bill could take place tonight in the state Senate, and a vote could come as early as tomorrow.
