From the Sun Times:
Until push came to shove Jim Oberweis strongly opposed same-sex marriage which he told NBC Chicago In October 2013. At last week’s debate with Dick Durbin, he flipped his decision. I wonder who he is really thinking of – himself or the LGBT community.
At Durbin debate, Oberweis flips, says he now backs gay marriage
GOP Senate nominee Jim Oberweis said he would support a federal marriage-equality measure at Wednesday’s debate with rival Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., after voting against a gay-marriage bill as a state senator and maintaining his opposition throughout his Senate bid.
“I think there is no arguing it any longer. At this point, I would say yes,” Oberweis said as he reversed his long-held objection to gay marriage at the debate, televised by ABC7 in partnership with the League of Women Voters of Illinois.
